I still think it's crazy that people actually live inside this castle even now! It's like a tiny village inside, with homes, a church, a store, restaurant, etc.
BEAUTIFUL view of Italy
This is a terrible video, so here's the story behind it: yesterday Madison, Alicia, and I rode to Vigoleno with Giovanni and Denillo (two of the teachers from Respighi and another nearby school). Giovanni speaks hardly any English, and Denillo only speaks a little. Driving (or riding) in Italy is so scary! Everyone goes whatever speed they want, one lane roads become two because cars squeeze through, and there are roundabouts everywhere. On the way back, it had been raining, and we were going down the side of a mountain on a narrow, curvy road. As soon as we got in the car, Giovanni started blasting the music that's playing in the video, and because we'd had so much wine, we started crying from laughing so hard. We thought the song fit our crazy drive down the side of the mountain. :)
