Tanti Auguri!

Tanti Auguri! Saturday night I went to my landlady's birthday dinner. There were actually three January birthdays, so we sang to all of them over a delicious mille-foglie cake: Daria, Marco (a sculptor), and Cecilia (an art critic and professor in Rome). More singing to follow, with the standards by Lucio Dalla, Battisti, de Gregori, and de Andre. Marco laughed: "She was born in Vietnam, raised in the United States, and sings Italian folk songs!" Great company.
