Went to the beach yesterday to celebrate a friend’s birthday.  Took a stroll up to Senigallia through a herd of bronze-skinned people, stumbled upon a roller blading competition, returned barefooted through the warm water, finished the night with pizza and cake and a toast of champagne.  The norm for all Italians on free weekends for the next month and a half.


Bentornata, estate.

And thus, summer has sunk into Italy.  Forecast for the next few weeks: cloudless skies, breezeless nights, the stickiness of salt on your skin, heated pebbles under your feet, cocktail glasses with long straws after midnight, lazy dinners on the beach, outdoor festivals, and gelati melting in your hands.
