Jacky & I jumped on the opportunity to party a little at a local Italian street festa celebrating Italian culture.

We’re overwhelmed with all the lovely people, the loud music, the amazing food, and the passionate dancing.

Balla come se nessuno stesse guardando,
ama come se nessuno ti avesse mai ferito,
canta come se nessuno stesse ascoltando,
