Chiara and I spent last weekend (which I like to think of as “my birthday weekend”) on the Tuscan coast. It was a wonderful presence. I was determined to get a suntan.
My sunburn was actually minimal, a nice base burn to build a tan on top of. PLus we swam in the sea, spent all sunday in and around the pool, and stayed at a beautiful agriturismo. The threatening storm I awoke to on Saturday morning never materialized, so we had beach time afternoon. Also, we weren’t in the hot and sticky city of Rome. It’s amazing how the heat takes on an entirely different aspect when it’s close to water.
