All of a sudden, people are everywhere! Its Easter Sunday in Italy, and after a miserable wet day yesterday, there is not a cloud in the sky today. From completely vacant streets, Italians have emerged from their cold damp stone homes to feel the warmth of the sun.
I am here visiting my sister on their Easter break. My brother-in-law is partaking in a European sailing regtta. Due to yesterdays weather, they did not get to race, so today they are playing catch up. My camera is amazing. The sail boats below are a long way out. This photo is great!
On the topic of technology, I flew over here as a proud Canadian Blackberry user, especially because I only live an hour away from the Blackberry company, RIM. Most of Malta uses them. The smartphones are popular over here. The Blackberry Playbook is a piece of junk. I cannot blog on it and that is what I bought it for. I have spent hours battling with my playbook. RIM, you have let me down big time.
I am not able to get out and savour agriculture here unfortunately. I miss the easy walks of Gozo. The big difference that I have noticed so far is that farm stands sell freshly pressed olive oil. And artichokes are in season. We went to a farmers market, and I have been enjoying thermal baths, medieval villages and fine meals instead of agriculture! Back to work soon!
