Give me my Summer back!

P1220728

Last weekend I was in Berlin and this is what it was about: full-blown Summer! The perfume of strawberries and linden flowers on the city streets. Dusseldorf, Dusseldorf, today you are obliging me to wear a raincoat, this morning I saw people in wellingtons marching in at my café, and rightly so: it was pouring down. Oh it feels like March!

It’s rainy and overcast and wechselhaft oh well it’s atlantic, you know, but being Italian if we cook something the world becomes a better place. So today we cooked on Skype and had our lunch with the Rhine, the North Sea and the river Aire in between… 🙂 …talking about Sicily…

Spring in Rome?

It is indeed rare that MeinMann – the Roman whose roots are indoubtedly stemming from beyond Limes Germanic tribes – utters some nostalgia of his hometown, the Urbe. But but but…today he did whisper…”Blimey do I miss the late Winter, early Spring walks in Rome…am walking here in Golden Acre Park and it’s just…bloody muddy…”.

So I re-blog a roman February 2011 photo…taken in our street, in our Kiez in Rome…and one dated April 2011, from the Palatine hill…I miss Rome, yes, it is time to go back and have a look again…maybe we will notice change, maybe change is not what we are after….
