plenty of time

The best part about living in Italy, I think, is going to be that we have time to enjoy all the nooks and crannies that we wouldn't see if we were here on a short vacation. We spent our entire Saturday walking around Palazzo Reale di Caserta. We spent hours inside and outside letting Graham take his time sauntering around. I don't think this place would have been on our list if we were in Italy for a short time, but it was magnificent and something we will probably do with guests.
After the palace, we drove up the hill to a small, medieval town called Caserta Vecchia and stumbled upon a Catholic wedding. We spent about an hour just observing the wedding party as they left the church. Noticing that people were gathering in the church after the wedding, we decided to join them and celebrated our first Italian mass.
We walked around town taking in the view and came upon a quaint restaurant, but had little cash, so the restaurant worker drove Tony down to a bank! We ate as the sun sat on the mountains and then Graham danced the night away. It was a perfect Saturday...
I'm trying to figure out some things with pictures, so I will post more shortly. I also have some things to say about our Sunday, too!
