We just got back into Milan today after a wonderful 3-week break from all the hectic running around and left our wonderful summer house (small house but great none the less!). The strange thing is that this year we had a really strange summer: mostly cold, rainy and yucky to say the least! On the last day here as we woke up and looked outside our small cottage window the sun was bright, the sky was blue and a strange feeling of having been tricked settled into our hearts!

Maybe the best way to express this is in a video:

And to follow some wonderful memories of a great summer with our dear friends who came down to visit from London. Michael Corsar (the guy with the beard) worked with a major design studio in Milan, Italy for close to a decade before getting married with Susan (a wonderful chef who has worked at St. Johns in London) and moved back to the City (London). On a whim of the moment, they decided to book the tickets and spend the beginning of August in the countryside along with our other dear friends Carlo and Yvonne who also own a nice country house about 5 minutes from our place. At the end of the stay and before heading back to London, Michael looked over at me while we had one of many glasses of Gutturnio red and told me: you have no idea how I miss Italy and the Italian way of life….Can I say that I understood and felt a strong emotion for which words can never express…yes, my friend I can believe it!
