Welcome 2018!

If there’s something that makes me feel at home, that is the celebration by which my city welcomes the new year 🍾 🎉 the thousand powerful colours that, for so long, from the stroke of midnight onwards, crowd the sky above the already bright windows of Naples: the noisy and colorful fireworks that always gladly cast out the old year’s fatigue and welcome the new one, “i botti” as we call them here.

And if you can stand with your head up together with the people you love, then everything is even more magical.

Hello 2018, nice to meet you! You already have a name that I prefer to that of your predecessor. Please do me a favour, be good! (*in Neapolitan: f ‘o’ brav) ..🤗

My mum’s super good Cassata

The Cassata is a famous Sicilian dessert made of almond paste, ricotta cheese, and sponge cake. Here is the recipe I found online that I like to accompany for you with a short video on the final trimmings … 😋

I am always here, eh

It has been a long time since I was on this blog, but I am still here in Cambridge. I have been working a lot. I am happy with this but the chronic fatigue after the working day is taking me away from these pages.  I do not complain and keep going.

Kasumi is distrustful of the male gender

The girl you’re going to see in this short video is Kasumi. She’ll be staying at my place  for a few days. She’s a young lady who does not really love men, and when we go out together, she keeps them all away! 😬

But for me it is important she gets along with my partner who in his own way, and with commitment, tries to conquer her.. 😂

Everything flows, even UNDER the rain

Panta rhei (πάντα ῥεῖ), “everything flows” said Heraclitus. So is it here obviously.  Everything is always changing, and so, after some nice, hot, light-filled day, today some “autumn feelings” (as I call them) have come back. Today I filmed this 👇 while I was on my way home.

I always say it, if there is one thing that makes my life milder here since I arrived, that are these wonderful furry kids/angels …
