It sounds stupid but I knew "San Marino" for the very first time when I was a 9-year old kid and a huge fan of the Colombian telenovela "Yo soy... Betty La Fea". In an episode, a character named Patrícia Fernandez, who was a secretary, proudly claimed that she attended University of San Marino for 6 semesters studying Finance.
On July 2015, I visited the real San Marino, another microstate landlocked in Italy besides the Holy See. The country, I think, was almost entirely made up of hills and fortresses, so the tour of the country was pretty exhausting. Nevertheless, all sweats were paid off after I've got to climb up the fortress and win this magnificent view. The fortress featured in this photo is Castello della Guaita. #sanmarino #italia #italy #microstate #guaita #fortress #castello #castle #medieval #hill #landscape #bluesky #europe #nofilter
