When I think I about last 3 years that I've been here, I don't remember late September and October being so warm.
Here, it's hot during July and August. Unbearably so because Italians have an unnatural fear of air conditioning.
But then, September is unpredictable, a couple of warm sunny days it will reluctantly give us before October becomes just chilled enough to request a light jacket and cancel your plans for late-season tanning. Summer paraphernalia like swim suits, shorts, and flip-flops are sadly boxed (but never forgotten), and the scent of sun block becomes a trigger of nostalgia for the brief time you had under the sun.
Look at that sunshine! This isn't normal, as I have said, and I will let my toes be free until the cold sends them to their room.
This is just a 5 minute walk from my house. Don't hate me.
To everyone's, I haven't put my sandals away yet. And I'm gonna wear shorts with my wet hair in a towel if you don't stop being smart-ass.
**When I wrote this, it was warm outside. My bragging has since caused winter to begin in Ischia...I apologize for my big mouth and apparent power to control the weather.
