A Lot of Rigmarole

Wayne had a little trouble pronouncing the name of one of the five villages of the Cinque Terre, the “Five Lands” that hug the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. That city’s name was Riomaggiore, but Wayne pronounced it Rigmarole-ee. He did not do it on purpose; it was just the best he could do with his Italian. What an amazing day it was! Words fail to describe the beauty of the ocean, the mountains, the cities clinging to the mountainside or hugging the ocean. It was as Italian as Italian can be. KG
