Not a problem for that though, just go to a local language institute for a translator.

  1. Loved the pictures and the notes. Was especially fond of the little boy and the clarity of the water and the home covered with gorgeous vines & the two dancers! Gr8 shots! Visiting Villa Miglleta is on my bucket list! Thank you for reminding us all it is possible to find beauty even in the darkest moments of life!
    Blessings to you.
