I returned to find absolutely glorious and sunny spring weather on the Amalfi Coast. The air is still cool in the shade, but when the sun shines all is right with the world and everyone knows la primavera is just around the corner. These are photos I snapped today while out running errands in Amalfi.
Walking into Piazza Duomo, the main square in Amalfi, I heard a band playing. How festive! The Mounds View High School Band from Arden Hills, Minnesota were set up in the sun at the base of the steps to the Duomo of Amalfi. A crowd of locals standing around were enjoying the music and the sun. So I naturally joined in and smiled as the crowd sang along to the Italian national anthem played by the Minnesota band.
Last year about this time I happened across another band group from Minnesota playing in the Piazza Duomo in Amalfi. Since I went to graduate school in the Twin Cities, it’s always fun to see other folks from Minnesota in Amalfi.
I love stumbling across moments like these here on the Amalfi Coast. It’s good to be home!!
