L'abbronzatura (feminine noun) - tan
It's only mid-June but there are already people walking around Milan with a ridiculous tan. Whether this is from the beach/park/sitting on the balcony all day, or one they've paid for in a tanning salon is a mystery, though after the only rare sightings of that yellow ball in the sky this year I'm tempted to go for the second option. Today was the first real chance I had to start working on my abbronzatura after all the bad weather we've had. The only problem is being a blonde-haired, blue-eyed Celt, I don't tan - I freckle.
