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! ūüė¨

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


Everything flows, even UNDER the rain

Panta rhei (ŌÄő¨őĹŌĄőĪ ŠŅ•őĶŠŅĖ), “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 ūüĎᬆwhile 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 …

A good moment in Cambridge ;)

Ok, I haven’t written here in a long time…since I left for Naples and then I came back to Cambridge with the desire to be still in Naples etc etc…And since I don’t like to depress anyone with my ¬†negative thoughts, I kept silent and posted only a few positive images (maybe just a seafood salad actually.. ūüėÖ) Anyway, here we are again, in July, after a very short summer week in June, and then some autumn days alternated with few sporadic warm days like the one you can see here !¬†ūüĎá

Yesterday, I was working on my laptop, some good music was playing, ¬†and I noticed that it was not so bad out of the window, in harmony with what’s in here…ūüėú

How to make a Neapolitan happy in Cambridge

Coffee break!

pausa-caffc3a8Today I did not even have time to put on the¬†coffee machine because of all the work I had to do. So, between working at my laptop¬†and a quick grocery shopping,¬†I allowed¬†myself a STRICTLY¬†single espresso take away from Caff√® Nero.¬†¬†I can introduce it to you: this is the most similar to the Neapolitan espresso coffee, the most decent they make¬†here in Cambridge (and in Uk in general.) Less watery than others and hence the most “single” there will ever be here. Be warned, if you come around here and begin¬†to despair¬†from the airport for the first few¬†sips and tries¬†of coffee, do not get discouraged and enter the first Caff√® Nero you find.¬† [N.B.¬†this is also the only coffe-shop chain¬†which¬†offers water here… as usual in every caf√© and bar in Naples ¬†ūüėČ]

My coming out [the side effects ..]

Lately everyone is criticizing these Spanish singers (such as Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, Ricky Martin, Luis Fonsi, etc.) who come up with¬†their successful hits as soon as the good¬†season shows up¬†(the real¬†proper one, in countries where there is still the cycle of seasons in accordance with the needs of our nature of human beings…) No way!¬†I have become an “addicted” to their cheerful ¬†and “fucking around” songs. With my surprise¬†actually:¬†I’m passionate about¬†music and I listen to all kinds, from instrumental to commercial, to classic .. In addition to beautiful melodies, I LOVE to find interesting and meaningful¬†lyrics able to¬†tug at my heartstrings.¬†So, the first time I saw the video I linked below, my thoughts (well “neapolitanly” expressed) were: “But what¬†characters..so lout!” or even things like “please,¬†guys, go to work !!”¬†Lately, I rather¬†play those¬†songs¬†over and over again to cheer myself¬†up.¬†¬†And in addition to the high volume, I need to watch¬†the videos:¬†nothing other than¬†people dancing, laughing and having fun, under an unbelievable sunshine on crowded beaches or at nightclubs, with actually some boor guys¬†and beautiful women flattered by their firm and “mucho cliente” courtship.

Yep! Let’s go to sing and dance.
