Epiphany in Stresa

This time last year I was in Stresa, Lake Maggiore with my family looking forward to the Procession of the Three Kings to be held on January 6th. My friend Tatiana of Italian Slow Walks asked me if I would write a guest post on her blog about my experience. You can read all about it at this link:

Here are some photos from the day, most of which were kindly taken by our friend Giuseppe:
