remembers quite vividly walking down dirt roads in the "campo" at night
and having to quickly dodge out of the way as unseen cars or motorcycles
with their headlights off whizzed past. She spent most of her time there
in the countryside. In the big cities, of course, she said people used
their headlights, but that they still drove crazy in her opinion :-)
