Message:  Joey,I went on a coach trip to Verona(Italy) yesterday. Epiphany is special for the Italian children because it is the day that the good witch comes and brings them presents as the three kings came to Jesus on January 6th bearing gifts.

It was quite impressive standing outside the giant amphitheatre in Verona with the people dressed up in carneval costumes waiting for the arrival of the three kings.

By the way, we also went to see Julia`s balcony. Underneath the balcony was a big Christmas tree literally covered with pieces of paper and cards hanging from the branches. The tradtition is that lovers and would-be lovers write their wishes down and hang them on the tree. I found it quite touching.
