Ciao! I have a riddle for you: how do you fit an inventor, a painter, a sculptor, an architect, and an engineer into a one-room apartment? When they're all one person: Leonardo da Vinci! As you can tell, I've just returned from 16th-century Florence, Italy, where I met Leonardo da Vinci. We hit it off immediately. He even let me call him "Smarty McSmart-Smart," which I thought was very friendly of him. Even better, just for me he invented a toaster that toasts only Italian bread. How cool was that? Ooh, I'll let you in on a little secret: the woman in the Mona Lisa painting is smiling because Leo had just told her to "turn that frown upside-down!" How's that for a hot fact? And one last note about Leo's mirror writing. His favorite backward sentence was "!amanaP - lanac a nalp a nam A" Ciao again!
