Nebbia in Val Padana

Home sweet home…

I’ve been living out of Milan, the city where I was born and grown up, for about 14 years - more than one-third of my life. And I have spent the last two years in Rome, the antithesis of Milan.

But have noticed that the Milanese in me is well alive and kicking - when, after a seven-hour drive under the starry skies of Italy, at the Melagnano toolboth, the southern gate of Milan, Leo and I were welcomed by a wall of thick, almost impenetrable fog. And, taking with confidence the right exit from the motorway (with that thick fog, an impossible operation for a foreigner), felt the incomparable sweet taste of being at home…

Ps: we’ll be in Milan until Sunday morning, and then fly to Le Cap Ferret, on the Atlantic Coast near Bordeaux, where we’ll stay until Friday 28. We’ll then be in Liguria around New Year’s Eve, and finally back to Rome on January 1. Not sure how often we’ll manage to update the Blog in the next dozen of days. If we won’t, a very merry Christmas and a happy new year to all of you since now!

(Re-) Discovering a Christmas tree - one year later

A few hair and a few centimeters more, but the glance of Leo (re-) discovering a Christmas tree is the same of one year ago
