Oh no!

When I lived in the Caribbean I was always out doing something, riding a bike, playing tennis or swimming. But now that I am back in the colder climates I hibernate a lot. I have not been outside for three days and am worried that I may be turning into a bit of a recluse. I’ll blame the weather for now, but what’s funny to me is that I just did something a minute ago that was so incredibly Italian that I had to laugh at myself.

It seems that most windows in Italy have a bit of a “ledge” hanging on the outside. I have often walked down cobble stone streets snapping photos of older Italian women peering out of their windows. It seems to me that this is a National past time for old Italian ladies or perhaps they are just being super nosy about their neighbors.

Well…guess what? I just opened the window wide, folded my arms and leaned on the ledge! I have been contemplating a walk all morning and thought I would stick my head out to see how cold it really was. What is happening to me? Have I become one of those old Italian ladies with nothing better to do than lean on a window sill contemplating life?

Scuzi, I need to go put on my trainers and jacket and get the heck outta here!

    hilarious! it’s so true! often they are just standing there watching traffic for hours! It’s probably because most of the buildings don’t have lifts so they’re sort of stuck inside if they have a hip problem or something…
