Agosto 2009 ~ Carpanzano, Cosenza, Calabria

It is so hard to believe that a year has passed.  Last year, around this time, I was getting my bags packed and ready for my month long trip to Calabria.  It feels like it was just yesterday that I was walking through the streets of Carpanzano.  You can probably imagine how difficult it is to know that I won’t be in Carpanzano this August.  I had hoped so very much that I would be back that way by now, but alas, it isn’t time for that yet.  As my friends and family in Italy slowly start to head south to Carpanzano for August I am left sitting here with only my memories.  I know there will be many more summers in Carpanzano to look forward to, but it’s hard when you just miss it so much.
