helloooo from SF!

polaroid

sunday night.
four days since i’ve landed.
48 hours to overcome jetleg.
time difference is a bit of a deal but not a big one (9 hours with italy and 5 with brazil)

but no major complaints.
i’m afterall in san francisco at last!
my first ever visit!

yeap. yeap. yeap!!!

my host is a sweet darling. her house is top! perfection to every single detail. and alamo square is one block from her doorsteps.
big time recomendation if you’re visiting and need a place to stay. just visit amrita’s page on airbnb.

i have walked so much. i believe it’s the best way to know a place.
to breath, to gaze and wander around together with the residents.

with my start/finish point at mcallister st i have been so far through market st (and side roads), embarcadero (piers and the saturday farmers market at ferry building), telegraph hill, north beach, russian hill, nob hill, chinatown, noe valley, haights, a beautiful bike ride at golden gate park…to name a few.

people smile at you.
been blessed with such awesome weather.
the speed and shapes of clouds fascinates me. i could watch them all day long.
it’s windy but i have my scarf with me.
the city has it’s problem (serious ones but which city hasn’t?!?!) and yet they don’t ignore it and the pace of such renowned positive vibe city keeps it up.

monday is a national holiday. labour day.
happy holidays to all my american friends.

as from tuesday full gear on as i’m visiting the universities, meeting people i have been in touch and work over the networld (sooooo happy about it!) and getting to explore more and more this magical city.

on a dog note: my gosh stella (the dog!) would love to move out here! how dogfriendly is SF guys?!?!? i’m well impressed!

from me to you, right here in san francisco.
lots of love and wishes of a good week

good morning & counting

morning all!!

the countdown has officially started!!
-10 days as from today!
geeeee am I excited about it!!!????

have started to plan my luggage, thinking about the weather….and couldn’t help but to think again about our favorite subject from the last few days….dear my celery! ( I enjoy calling him this way but with all my heart I promise it is with affection!!)

so is the weather in San Francisco really that bad?!?!
believe me people after 10 years of living in London…anywhere else in the world is fine weather!!
I guess I will have that “safe and sure” jumper like our grandmas always tell us to have it on toe, just to be on the safe side eh?!

In the mean time Turin in treating me with a very nice weather these days so I’m enjoying the city with loads of walks around, taking pictures and holding very piece of special moment to my heart!! Turin will always have a special place in my heart and be a homey reference for me!!

last but not least I came across this link earlier and thought it is fair to share it!!!

Have a good Sunday everyone!
