My favorite place on this trip has been Vernazza, Italy, in the region called Cinque Terre. Why? Maybe because it was warm and sunny every day, or maybe it’s because there was an amazing beach right next to us, or maybe it’s because half the people there spoke English. Vernazza is so beautiful. The Mediterranean’s water is so clear, and there are grape vines growing up the hill with green vegetation surrounding them. The old original buildings are really well kept and are really fun to stay in. Most of the people there speak English, so it was really fun to be able to talk to people and know where they’re from.
A little while ago, my dad’s camera broke, and he bought a new one. Well, it turned out his camera wasn’t really broken, so he had an extra camera that he gave to me since I loved taking pictures in Rome. My mom asked me to write about why Vernazza is my favorite place, so I did. When I was done, my dad helped me put it in a slide show with all my photos that I took in Vernazza. Thank you, David Glass (my old piano teacher), for letting me put your music in the slide show. My brother wrote about Vernazza, too, and his story is also in the slide show. (If you play the video full screen, you can read the words better.)
