Yes, the barefoot twelve year old beat us all on the way back to the car; partly because she was having a pre-teen attitude problem and was making a point :)
I have an accent??. What?? I sure can't hear it!
I am half Swiss and half Italian, which does not make me Swiss Italian by the way. Swiss Italian is a Swiss person from the Graubünden region, where Italian is the main language. I am Swiss, from the German speaking part of Switzerland, AND Italian, as my dad was Italian. I was raised in the Alps the first 10 years, then we moved to my father's hometown, Firenze ( Florence).
