Agriturismo Reservations

Each day things are coming together more and more. I am now speaking and writing to a recently discovered cousin and a few friends in Italy, either by e-mail or by Skype, which is a great way to be able to communicate.  The great thing about Skype is that it is free, when the other party also has it on their computer or phone. In addition, the ability to see the person with whom you are having the conversation is an extra bonus. This is one of the ways that   I hope to be able to communicate while I am in Italy.

I have also posted a few more articles on my Blogroll, one on Italy’s La Passeggiata, which is an Italian daily custom in which the streets suddenly become overwhelmed with throngs of people between 5 and 8pm. I experienced this in Rome on via del Corso, and NYC streets are tame in comparison!  I also added my article on the Greek Theatre in Taormina, Sicily, which is an experience not to be missed! I took so many photos while I was there because the panorama vistas are simply incredible! What did we do before the era of digital cameras?

I have to say that my Italian classes have come in handy, as I was able to write an e-mail in Italian today to a small agriturismo in the rural village of Colle d’Anchise, which was the birthplace of my grandparents. I requested reservations in this recommended 14-bed converted farmhouse, and was thrilled when Signor Lucarelli wrote back in Italian with a confirmation, “confermo prenotazione.” This will be another new experience, and I can’t wait!
