Early in the morning like before the university exams

I had never done that before. I happened to take the dog outside at 5.30 in the morning last weekend and to walk around the sleepy Cambridge. A beautiful feeling of calm and energy at the same time just like when you wake up very early in Naples, to prepare and study for an exam. I felt good and almost at home .. how nice 👇👇👇🎥

Blue Monday

The most depressing Monday of the year they say, and I think they are not wrong. Today, Monday 15th January, here in Cambridge, it has been one of those so over-rainy and dark days. I’ve been working, working, working. I like this job, I feel lucky, but I’m feeling tired, tired, tired. My day here never opens with the light you would expect every new day, and it is super short (as well as cold). After work, exhausted, I rush home. Dinner and zero energy. I have to batten down the hatches. I’m just trying to understand how. Together with my energies, even my hormones are now dead, they said “Gi ‘! Come on..”, and then they committed suicide.

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.. 😅) 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 ! 👇

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…😜

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 Caffè 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 Caffè Nero you find.  [N.B. this is also the only coffe-shop chain which offers water here… as usual in every café and bar in Naples  😉]
