Winter, maybe

In Genova, where I was at the weekend, the temperature was around 16°C.  Not bad for the bleak mid-winter.  Even in Milan we had around 10°C, which is unseasonably warm for the time of year.

Today in Milan, on the other hand, it is about 5°C and grey.  It almost feels cold enough to be winter.

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.

The other day I was out with some friends, a rare offspring free evening, and the subject of ever warmer climates came up.  One of my friends suggested that buying up properties in Scotland may not be such a bad idea, as within 50 years or so, Scotland may be considered the new Mediterranean.  What a thought! Italy will quite possibly become as hot as the Sahara, he seemed to think.   In which case the only skiing anyone will be doing in Europe will be on water.

Yes, I’m going through an environmentally conscious phase at the moment, as you may have noticed….
