Il Fantasma di Viticcio

Here is a video of me saying my story in Italiano. After the video you can read what it means in English. Don't be scared. It's not a real story. It's a mystery.

The Ghost of Viticcio

In 2006 I was at Viticcio in my room when the ghost arrived in my room. He was funny.

At a certain point the lights went out in my house and the window opened and a big owl entered my room and I was scared.

I turned all the lights on and then there was nothing left and the window was closed.


Viticcio is where I live.

Hey buddy, you are doing such a great job with your Italian. I tell ya, I am one proud uncle. You sure are one smart buckaroo.

Wow, what great Italian! I have been following your and your grandma's blogs and I am so impressed with how you have adapted to life in Italy and learned the language! Auguri! Also a very good story!

When I was in high school I spent a year in Panama and I didn't know any Spanish when I got there but like you know, it goes quite fast to learn a language when you hear it all the time. It was scary at first but then fun.

KZ--good job on the Italian. You are learning way faster than I am! Next time it would be nice if you could also add the Italian words to your blog! Ciao, Sz

I don’t speak Italian (yet) but I really enjoyed watching this video clip. You have a captivating screen presence. Perhaps, a career as a film star is in your future (by the way, you already are a bright little star!).

THANK YOU ALL--for leaving me nice comments. I like hearing from you. I can't wait to see you in May Auntie Ann.
