Afternoon everyone. It's a beautiful day here in Ischia, perfect blue skies accompanied by a fairly stiff breeze and a current temperature of 17° Celsius (63° Fahrenheit). Over the last few days we've hand much stronger winds creating all sorts of havoc out at sea but things seem to be settling down for the rest of the week now. In fact the weather forecast for the next seven days is very positive indeed with not a rain cloud in sight and similar temperatures to those of today. By the way, today is International Women's Day and in Ischia it's celebrated by men giving women sprigs or bunches of Mimosa. The Mimosa trees grow freely on the island which gives men the choice of "borrowing" a little bit from a tree or buying one from one of the road-side vendors. Ciao :-)
