Forgotten old villages in Central Italy

Just to show the serenity of some old villages in Central Italy, 80 km North from Rome. There isn't any car in those historical villages. And there isn't any noise when I walk through the narrowest  alleys. Those places make me feel good. I went there for job last week. It's name is Latera, 775 inhabitants! Fantastic!

Since the epidemic began to spread, in early 2020, many people have decided to come back to small  villages. Many people, who can do their job from home (or anywhere they choose). Some remote workers, such as virtual assistants, website testers or online educators, can choose to live in one of those amazing old villages. 


Today is a Christian holiday celebrated in honour af all the Saints of the church. All Saints' Day is also known as All Hallows' Day.

Have a happy all Saints' Day!

First two days of the week

 

During the first two days of this I week went to Rome and Trevignano for job. On this two sunny days  many tourists were visiting Rome's oldest neighborhoods,  and its main landmarks, as usual. I have never noticed before that close to Vatican city most advertisements are written in English language.

Great to see that Trevignano's oldest neighborhood is car-free zone for a better environment. Trevignano, with its old stone houses, is a small village of 5,000 inhabitants. It is located 50 km North from Rome and close to the Bracciano lake. 
While I was walking along the oldest part of this typical Italian village I took some pictures of the wooden doors. 








Enjoy the rest of this week!

Quite noisy

 

The modest street of the residential neighborhood where I live is in need of a face-lift. So this morning the neighborhood is quite noisy. 
Unfortunately, the local administration isn't interested in planting trees along urban environment's sidewalk. There are only two big trees along the street's sidewalk (picture below). Many streets and neighborhoods in my town haven't as trees as they should.


Meanwhile, a view from my window shows that rainy weather is coming once again.


Here below a collection of milk & coffee served in my neighborhood's pub in the early morning last month:  







Nice week to everyone!

Raibow

Just to show the raimbow I saw while I was driving back home. I went to Rome for job. I was glad to see many tourists, who came from all the continents, while they were gathering Vatican Square. Great to see many of them still wearing a mask.


Meanwhile, it seems rainy weather is coming.

Enjoy your blogging journey :-)

Last day of the Summer


Good morning! This morning the waitress wrote "Buongiorno" on the milk suface :-) 

In Northern hemisphere Summer 2022 ends today, Friday, September 23. 




But many people are still enjoying beaches and boats, as the sea is still warm enough to swim and weather is still sunny.


I hope all blogger friends will enjoy the new season :-)

Sunny week after the storm

After a stormy weekend we're still enjoying a sunny week ... but  this Summer which is going to an end slowly. 



Still enjoying the water & sun in the afternoon, although the daytime light has been becoming shorter and shorter, due to the tilting of the axis away from the sun. 


Glad to see that many areas of the Italian coast aren't polluted.
The picture above shows that we can find white sand beaches also here in Italy. Italians (and European tourists) don't need to go to tropical islands or caribbean resorts :-)

Enjoy the rest of this Summer (Nothern hemisphere)!

Still waiting for rain

I took these four pictures this afternoon after I had covered my small boat with a plastic tarp, which is the least expensive option. I'm afraid the rain will be dirty and brown this evening, as Saharan dust clouds carry sand on wind above the ground. 

It seems it will rain soon. According to the weather forecast, the weather this evening will be persistent. Unfortunately, rain and wind will continue to impact Central and South Italy in the next 12 hours.


... and, obviously, fisherman's boats will not sail in the next few days.


This Summer we (Italians) need rainy weather. That's why I hope weather forecast will not be wrong :-)
That's all for now!
