New Year...time for a new start



Happy New Year. And Happy New Start! I'm back again after a long time. Now happily mother of three (ages 7, 5 and 2), I might say busily mother of three, I still keep taking lots of pictures...so I really feel as coming back to my blog.

To start, a picture taken yesterday evening. The night before Epiphany (today, 6th January) traditionally the casera is being burn on the river. A very tall stack of wood and hay is put at the center of the river Lemene (on floating metal barrels) and is given fire. According to how the smoke and sparks move, elder people make a prevision on how the harvest will be in summer.
