buon giorno, italia

My first week in Italy è finito. Five of us (my mom, dad, brother Michael, sister Melissa, and I) moseyed around Umbria and Tuscany by car and train, relaxing in our country house near Citta della Pieve each night. Highlight of the week: Civita, a tiny—dying—village perched precariously on a pinnacle in the middle of a canyon just south of Orvieto, accessed only by a footbridge from the (less-dangerously situated) neighbor town Bagnoregio.
