A day in Torino
Now that my brother Jose has arrived in Torino, Carlo and I spent the day showing them around our city.
This morning, Pepe, Lizzy and I walked around the mercato before lunch. I think they really enjoyed seeing some of the everyday life in Italy.

After our stroll, we went to Mamma Adelasia’s house for lunch. She made sure that they didn’t leave hungry.
which Lizzy & Pepe both enjoyed (well, at least that’s what they said)
Carlo and I decided to take them downtown to do some window shopping and get to know our lovely city.

Carlo and I had a great time with Jose and Lizzy. We hope they did too and aren’t too mad at uswithall of the walking we did!

Jose & Lizzy were married in Washington D.C. and have this great picture with the Capital Building in the background. In the picture, he dips her and they are kissing. So, now that’s their thing…. doing their “wedding kiss” at city landmarks!
