This kiddo is happy to be back with her Italian peeps, and they have welcomed her home to the paese with gusto. No one here has a pool, and to go to a pool costs money and takes time and "We're going to the seaside next week anyway." So. Where there is a will there is a way, right?
It's good to be home. Tonight we are going to a block party with 140 of our neighbors in the paese. Down in the piazzetta, right past the tiny grocery store. Don't try coming up our hill because the road will be closed, my friends. Party in the paese.
PS. They are going to the seaside. Remember beautiful Caorle? We will just melt here and wish we were at the seaside with the rest of the citizens of Veneto.
