Vernazza: Surf's Up!

On November 17, Levanto (near Monterosso) hosted the ASP WLT Bear Pro International Longboard Surfing Tour. Thanks to a "Lay Day" where there were no waves, some of the contestants got together to visit Vernazza and see firsthand what was really going on. Bear Pro has put together a beautiful video documenting what they saw. It gives some great views of the work in action. Take a look!

A Day In The Life...

Check out my new series "A day in the life of..."! It is a collection of short notes I made about my daily Italian activities. It could be something funny, something sad, or most likely, something that has to do with the craziness (or beauty depending on your perspective) of Italy.
