Last Day of School

Yesterday was the last day of high school for all Torino teenagers and I learned that on the last day they all meet (thousands of them) in the center of the city (where my house is) and have a water fight while playing in the fountains. I had go outside and capture the moment.

*Update, After reading the paper today, I found out the number of students in the piazza was 10,000. Yes ten thousand. 118 ambulences were on stand by, only 2 kids needed them.

Why, oh why, don't I live in that wonderful country? You get to see some of the coolest traditions!

Don't you just love Italy! Here in Texas that would have been considered a riot, and the National guard would have been on stand-by!
