Our landlord Pasquale (pictured below with sunglasses) runs a local radio station. He was asked to sponsor a local football tournament. It is a memorial tournament for a boy at the age of 19 enjoyed free climbing the local cliffs. He fell quite a distance 13 years ago, and these tournaments, 8 teams, are put together every year in his memory. On our trip from the airport Pasquale invited us to come watch. So of course we went!
Pasquale quick darted off as he was late for his New Years family party. What a great introduction to Italy!
