Huge heat wave in this part of Italy, a good 10-15 degrees F higher than usual. Meaning, 90-100 instead of 75-90. Ah, well. Does it stop me?
I write in the morning and teach in the early afternoon. In the early early morning, when it’s cool; in the mid-to-late afternoon, when it’s ridiculously hot; and in the late evening, when it’s thinking about cooling down again, I’ve been taking long walks. Sometimes alone, sometimes with my buddy Barb. The ones in the evening are classic post-dinner strolls and are usually with a group of about half-a-dozen people.
These are photos from the first three days’ worth of walks.
