The Road to a Stone House
Only eight homesteads are still occupied in Raicani. Neighbors see each other at Sunday mass, or when they need to borrow a bit of sugar, cooking oil, or whatever’s missing before the next trip down the hill.

As long as you teach your child to travel, whichever way you choose, I think it's a very very good thing."
