June 24th- Here in Torino, it’s the Feast of St. John the Baptist, Patron Saint of the city. It’s a big deal with festivities and fireworks. I missed everything last year since I was in Texas but this year, I was able to enjoy the day. Because it is a city holiday, a lot of people are off for work. Carlo was home and he was able to spend the day with Valentina. We didn’t attend any of the day’s events but, we went downtown to enjoy the fireworks.
