The 'Indian miracle'

Sunday eve

Monday morning

When I was in Ethiopia we used to witness a strange phenomenon, which we called the ‘Ethiopian miracle’. No-matter how dirty we left our kitchens, how many dirty dishes we left in the sink, how much in disorder we left our living rooms and dining rooms, in the morning when we woke up everything was clean and in perfect order. Indeed, it was a true miracle...

A similar phenomenon happens here in India as well. Look at how I left (Riccardo’s) kitchen on Sunday eve, and look how I found it on Monday morning. The Indian version of the Ethiopian miracle...

The Indian miracle has a name: Kusuum, Riccardo's 'mamita', or, better, 'maid', as they call them here. And from the day I entered in Riccardo’s home, Kusuum started taking care of me as she did with Riccardo.

So, mamma and Mathilde, don’t worry: I am well fed, clean, and spoiled...

  1. I do not see any Barilla box in the kitchen: is it possible?

  2. Ho scoperto che esiste anche un "mum" miracle...
    Prendi in affitto una casa fatiscente e dopo qualche giorno che non la vedi la trovi stuccata, imbiancata, ripulita e pronta per essere ammobiliata...
