By knocking on doors, we found lodging in Corniglia, Italy when we needed to stay longer than planned. Maria, who could not speak English, let one of her tenants translate for us that there was a beautiful apartment across the way. We did not know it would be where we would return 5 times because of the incredible views. Maria had a hard life working in the vineyards and also raising her family. We shared limencello with her on a number of occasions and always communicated more with smiles than language.
