Word of The Week

L'autunno - Autumn

No, the photo's not from this year, but with the autumn equinox tomorrow the seasons are starting to change. Growing up I always used to think of September as being the start of autumn, especially as I'd go back to school at the beginning of the month. Here the Italians try to cling on to summer for as long as they possibily can - which is reasonable if you live down South - and don't even contemplate the idea of autumn until the equinox. Coming back to Italy on Wednesday I noticed a difference in the temperature from how it had been the previous week, here in Milan there's a definite hint of autumn in the air. And I can't wait for the colder weather!
