The Sunday Salon: Io Sono in Italia! (I Am in Italy!)

  


                                        

Welcome! I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. What is the Sunday Salon? The Sunday Salon is a place to link up and share what we have been doing during the week plus it's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 





Since I've last seen you, we have visited Cinque Terre (above) and Piedmont in Italy. On Thursday, we rode the train from Milan to where we will stay in Puglia for the last week of our time in Italy. 


Here's a photo of the excellent stuffed pasta with hazelnuts I ate as well as the fantastic local wine I drank in Piedmont in northern Italy. I promise more to come when I have a little more time.






Readerbuzz is happily touring Italy in September.

I've scheduled a Sunday Salon that will post early each Saturday morning in September.

I plan to visit everyone's blogs as usual while I am away...













Here is what I am reading while I'm away in Italy...

My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
If on a Winter's Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino
The Penguin Book of Italian Short Stories
The Complete Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino
Forbidden Notebook by Alba de C├ęspedes 
Daniel Deronda by George Eliot
Italian Lessons by Beppe Severgnini

I actually finished Forbidden Notebook by Alba de C├ęspedes on the train. I highly recommend this translation of a book by an excellent Italian author.

And I crossed Daniel Deronda off my list. Not in the mood for this right now.

Italian Lessons by Beppe Severgnini, a book about the reasons we love the Italians, on the other hand, is just light enough for a read right now. I do hope to get to My Brilliant Friend and/or If on a Winter's Night a Traveller before I head for home late next week.
