Please Don’t Go

Summer is ending, and I never felt so sorry to see it going.

Usually as cooler temperatures set in, it is with a certain pleasure that we start looking forward to warmer clothing, real shoes instead of sandals, slides, and flip flops.

Not This Time

This year however, summer was not long enough, or so it seems.

Worries about another wave of contagion is in everybody’s mind. Another total lockdown is terrifying me.

It was somehow easier in summer for business like bars and restaurants to move their services in “plein air,” but soon that won’t be possible anymore.

No More Dancing Queens

After Ferragosto in Italy there won’t be “Dancing Queens” anymore. The government has decided to suspend all “dance activities” that take place in discos, ballrooms and the likes, not even in bathing establishments, equipped beaches, free beaches, common areas of accommodation facilities or in other places open to the public.

There Goes All the Fun!

Moreover, from August 17, throughout Italy, the use of masks is enforced from 6 pm to 6 am, even outdoors, and in all public places.

Anti-flu vaccines are strongly recommended!

Happy Autumn to All.

I lived the most part of my life in Washington DC, now in Italy getting to know again my country. Plenty of surprises, for good and bad, and lots of nostalgia for DC.

  1. I can understand how you must be feeling! The whole COVID-19 situation has taken away the simple joys that the change of seasons would offer. I’ve been staying at home for 6 months now! Though I come from a part of the world where the weather doesn’t change drastically come summer or winter, summers always meant going to the beach and enjoying the sun. But this year, it has just been staying at home.

    Hope things get better soon! Loved the pictures! Looking forward to more pictures of Autumn.


    1. Thank you fit your comment. Yes COVID was a problem, and still is.
      For us in Italy we get to enjoy popular destinations without crowds. It was unthinkable a year ago. But the businesses are suffering a lot.
