You could hardly be having a more fantastic experience of Italy than we are. Hard to imagine that yesterday morning we were in beautiful Ravello, and tonight found us in the beautiful Italian Tirol at the Castle Tirol performing for the Meraner Festwochen. Too bad we couldn't photograph the castle as we drove up a very steep and windy road to get to it - totally spectacular. The concert was in a rectangular room holding about 300 people with views of the surrounding countryside. Seemed to be an audience full of people who know us - the program went very well, and we did two encores so that the stamping wouldn't bring down the old building. As we started Swing Down Sweet Chariot, thunder and lightning broke out which was very dramatic indeed.
