I met Karla Verdugo on my first days back here in Genova.
She was exhibiting her art on Via San Lorenzo, nestled in amongst Amadeo, Franco, Angelo, Santo, Jane, Luciano, and Rossi. Little did I know that this group would open and let a wandering kiwi into their midst in the most generous of ways.
Yesterday, I went back and spent the day with them, and Karla was my tireless translator. We laughed often and there are so many stories totell about these delicious people but not today. This is simply to post my photograph of Karla and to thank her for translating a most magical day.
