Quick update

I didn’t mean to disappear off the face of the earth.  It’s just that I’ve entered the alternate world of Italian real estate.  I’m looking for an apartment.  And that, by definition, means I’m speaking Italian daily.  I’m learning all the real estate words.

Meanwhile, below is a photo (credit to Sarie) of one of my favorite parts of the city, the intersection where Via Micca meets Via Cernaia and Piazza Solferino.  I would like to live not far from here.

And my iPad is a real life saver in this search.  I can plug in any two addresses and get public transit directions on a map from one to the other, with time included.  On the go. And a little blue dot with my location follows me the whole way.

Torno subito! (Back soon.)

  1. Barbara, the whole city looks more or less like this! What I like about this area is that three great streets meet here, it’s close to everything, and there are great shops. I mean food shops mostly, but there are all kinds. And there’s a Grom.

    Lynn, thanks! We’re getting there. I’m looking forward to having a place of our own again. It’s not nearly as long as you went without one, though.

    Susan, you’re welcome any time!
