I was casually strolling to my local paneteria for some bread rolls to make into hamburger buns yesterday when I suddenly realized that the main street was blocked by a funeral persession . It seems the entire town was following and chanting Maria prayers. It was interesting for me to see how a small Italian town gathers together. It looked like this:
So after the persession went by and I finally made it to the bakery, turns out it was closed for 1 month for vacation. I went home with no bread and that's life in Italy!

A whole month? Why don't Americans take vacations like that?
