Learning Italian hand gestures

I talked to a friend of mine about learning Italian language and people's habit, then a video clip I've watched some time ago came to my mind. It's a funny one but I admit that at the beginning when I transferred to Italy, I found their way of conducting hand gestures while speaking a bit ridiculous. However, I think it's useful knowing what the gestures mean. Each nation has its own customs!

Phuket - one of the places I've loved

Despite the gigantic disaster from tsunami on December 26, 2004, Phuket has recovered and returned to be heaven on earth again. This place restores me a quite valuable memory of my youth.

The coldest summer

This's the sky in July. This summer must be the coldest and rainiest one in my memory since I've lived in Italy (since 1999). Last winter was the warmest one in my memory though. If autumn turns out to be sunny, then we'll have such a good year end. Yet why these are all happening?? 

I just drop by to say hello and keep my blog alive! So sorry not to update it more often. I'm working too slowly on my writing project too. I sometimes wish I could stop the world for a moment!
