Cousin Michael Muro is spending the Christmas holiday in Agropoli. His flight was late due to falling snow. This necessitated Michael flying from Pittsburgh to Newark. From Newark he flew to Toronto. Then from Toronto to Rome. He arrived safely in Agropoli this past Tuesday.
Michael told me via email it was raining when he first arrived. He wasn’t able to get too many photos but I think the ones he sent give us a glimpse into how the town is decorated for the holidays. I was very surprised to see the inflatable igloos and Santas that have been placed along some of the ancient streets. We have similar inflatable displays here in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, New York, too.
Michael is staying with the Carnicelli family and plans to spend some time with Giuseppe and Vincenzo. If time and schedules permit he will also visit other relatives.
Thank you, Michael for sending us these photos. Merry Christmas to you, the Carnicelli family and all our extended family in Agropoli and Calabria.
