Assisi, Anybody?Category: Travels

Last weekend I went to a little town in central Italy called Assisi. It's near
Perugia. It took about four hours to drive there, but it was certainly worth it. You
see, every year on the second full weekend in May (or something like that) the people
of Assisi (Assisians?) have a medieval festival, and it is sooooooooooooooo
coooooooooooool. 

There are two teams, the Sopra, who are the blue team and represent the nobles and
royalty and the leaders, and the Soto, who are the red team and represent the
peasants. It starts on Thursday, but we got there late Friday afternoon. On Saturday
there was a something like a play, and each team did one. I didn't really get the the
whole plot, because it's in Italian and I wish I could speak it but sadly can't, but
I got the gist of it. Later, at night when it was dark, they did a another play
thingy, but this time they used fire, and man was that awesome. I had never been
before, but I was for the Soto's (I'm always for the red team, don't know why,
though) and we're pretty sure that they won. My mom thinks that the Soto's did better
the first time, in the daylight, and the Sopra's did better at night with the fire,
And I sorta agree with her. I'll have to check out the new Pics thing and see if I
can load some pictures.

Ciao!
