Day 135 of My Italian Learning Journal*
On a regular basis, we receive travel brochures at home from different companies. What arrived in our mail today was a booklet from a company we have not traveled with before. The brochure contained many photos of places in Italy. It was enjoyable to view those pictures of places my wife and I have visited. Though Amalfi may not offer the big city attractions, there is a fascination about it. Just being there instilled an emotion of joy. The Amalfi coast is famed for its production of Limoncello liqueur and the area is a known cultivator of lemons -- the lemons are huge! The patron saint of Amalfi is Saint Andrew, the Apostle, whose relics are kept here at Amalfi Cathedral dates to the 11th century. (Next, a short script to practice Italian; grammar corrections are welcome.)
