Wild weather

There has been some wild weather in Bagni di Lucca. There was snow for a few hours before rain came to wash it all away.

The river that was extraordinarily low this summer is now roaring past.

I wiish I was around to see the snow and rain. I love to stand at my window to watch it all happen.

Thank you Paul for taking photos of my front yard.

Presepe Vivente Granaiola

I would love to have been at the Presepe Vivente in Granaiola on the weekend. This event is one of the most delightful things to happen in Bagni di Lucca. The whole community gets involved, turning an ancient village into living theatre.

Local photographer David Bonaventuri took these amazing photos. Please look at his Facebook page for more and while you are there see the amazing photos he takes of our beautiful area.

My friend Paola managed to get her photo taken with baby Jesus, played wonderfully by Rafael Kniver.

She took photos too.

I know the event was enjoyed by all who participated. I will have to stay on through December one year to see it for myself.
