Friends from Sonnino

This is a picture of some friends from Sonnino. They took me on a fantastic trip to a little called Serrmoneta. It has a beautiful castle which I'll write more about in future posts. From left to right (Eliza, me, Roberto, Luca, Milcho(sp?). This is also a great way to get them to read the blog!

"Le Torce" video...the first of many!

This is a video I took of the torches right after they were lit and folks we're starting to head down the mountain. This is the first point at which the people in Sonnino could see us. It was a pretty amazing moment! There were fireworks a few minutes later. If you have speakers, turn them on and listen to people singing and firing guns.

Back fromn Sonnino

Sorry for the lack of posts. I just returned from Sonnino and had an amazing time and have some great things to post about. I went to Sonnino for Le Torce, it was an incredible experience that I'll write more about.

IN the meantime, please enjoy the picture of My Zia Annunziatina and Zio Giovanni's fabulous produce. The have some of the greenest thumbs I have ever seen! The food is always fresh at their house. In this picture there are fava beans, which are season right now, as well as a leafy green that I forget the name of. There is also some frutta secca (dried figs with an almond in the middle) perched on the basket. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!
