She makes it look easy


Like in most towns in the area, Sant’Andrea’s cobblestone streets are tight, to say the least. The vast majority aren’t wide enough to fit two Matchbox-sized cars at a time, making driving for newbies a heart-pumping challenge.

Even hairier, there is a one-way path — a six-foot-wide alley, really — that’s used as a shortcut to avoid the long road that wraps around Sant’Andrea. Most drivers avoid it. Daniela doesn’t.

In fact, she zips her tiny Daewoo through it as if she’s Mario Andretti on the big oval. Uncle Bruno nearly spit up lunch the first time we took the trip with her.

Notice the scrapes on the walls — reminders of the many times drivers who took the turns a little too loose.
