Cars lining up to park for the Festa of the Wild Boar--Santa Domenica Talo
In August, there are more concerts, festas and events that are just beginning at 9:30-10 PM. Afternoon naps help, but it’s still a challenge to the internal clocks even after 7 months. We can’t play the “age card” because there are plenty of 70-80 year olds roaming around at midnight and later. One night we returned from dinner in Scalea at midnight and a rock concert was just ending in the piazza. We were ambushed by Irish friends, went to their house and got home at 3AM. Mama mia...
It’s festa time again this week in Santa Domenica Talao--Sagra di Cinghiale (Festa of the Wild Boar).
We admire how people here have a great time just meeting in the square for a little entertainment. How both the very old and the very young enjoy the same thing—being a part of the community. Remember that song Carbaret? What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play. Life is a Cabaret, old chum, Come to the Cabaret. That seems to sum up life here in Agosto--Then, in the AM, it’s off to the beach. Sorry, too busy to write more.
