This is a 360 degree view of the splendid Portsall port. I was working on Vincent's boat (you can see the mast in the center) and took this panoramic pics. On the opposite side of the harbour you can see the Guiligy cross and all around lovely wooden boats that make this place a dream place.
Ufortunately I have to leave in search of a job. I'm a bit sad even if I like the challenges of a new life and - hopefully - of a new job. Let's see what happens in Milan, and I cross my fingers!

Introducing Bouboulino

A new friend came to visit us here in Portsall, France. Isn't he cute? He followed us in the street, and because we mistook him for our neighbour's cat, we took him, petted him, and he started to purr like hell. So cute! When we found out that he was a HE and our neighbour's cat is a HER, we tried to get rid of him. He was so lovely and soft, and tidy that we were sure he belonged to someone. Instead of going back home, though, he followed us, and waited all night outside. These days have been so cold! The morning after when we opened the door, he was still there, sneezing. Poor kitty!!! We felt so ashamed, so we let him in, gave him food, caresses and flea treatment ;-)
He is now part of the family, and we love him!
Well, my kitty ladies love him little less... they are pretty jealous, so we separate the cats at night, but I guess the garden is big enough for three cats, and for the moment the cohabitation is good. Let's hope it lasts.

Touring in Rome

Hello everybody,
with the new year I came back for a while in my old town, Rome (Italy). I just love this city, especially for short periods, when you don't have to worry about traffic jams, too many tourists, queueing for the good restaurants etc... Anyway I'm having a ball, and I'm eating so many delicious roman dishes, like carbonara, cacio e pepe, amatriciana & co, in the old Trastevere and Testaccio neighborhoods or in the vital Pigneto.

In the next few days, before joining my sistser in Milan, I'm planning to visit the Foro Romano, The Palatino, St Peter's and some part of the roman sea side! I guess I'll be busy, but I want to fulfill my eyes with all this beauty...
