Natale Al Borgo

Shop Window Nativity 
This evening we went up to Castellabate to celebrate
Natale al Borgo - another excuse for the Italians to
indulge their love of food & music.
We walked through the narrow alleyways,
peering through doorways to check out
what was being prepared behind 
the ancient wooden doors.

Salsiccie alla griglia
Dolce, dolce, dolce!
We wound our way to La Piazzetta, where women
sat spinning wool & the laundry was being
done by hand.
Laundress feeds the duck

Spinning by hand

Presepe vivente
But the main highlight was the presepe vivente,
with a new baby laying in the manger....

Cute or what?
