Is it too hot?
To be honest, at the time it all seemed a tad hot. Italy was broiling - up to 40C some days and being acclimatised to The Isle of Lewis, it did seem too warm. Now, with rain coming down for the last few days, storms passing over the island regularly in the wake of the national MOD, the thought of sitting in the warm shade with a cup of espresso watching the world go by in Tuscany is rather more appealing.
I rather admire the hoardes of tartan clad personages who have been roaming around Stornoway in search of a dry spot, or a dram or, in the case of one bakery, a dram soaked Stornoway black-pudding bun!
But now I'm about the brave the weather again the evening for work, Tuscany again feels along way away
