Climate change

By gum it was a little chilly this morning, by Italian standards. To be honest in all my years here I have never noticed a cool morning in June. Unusual, very unusual.

Things start, literally, heating up from the middle of May onwards and June is generally when you wish you had gone ahead and installed air conditioning.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

I'm wearing an unusually heavy pair of trousers for the time of year too. Normally anything heavier than linen leaves me sweaty and horrible. On my feet, when I'm not working, I wear sandals with no socks, and my brow is permanently wet from too much sweat. Today, no wet sweat, at least not yet. No sandals either.

Not really global warming so much as 'global cooling' if you ask me.
