Evening all. It's 7pm and I'm sitting here with the curtains drawn to stop the sun blazing through the window at the end of another metronomically-hot day in Ischia. Actually I hadn't checked the weather forecast since my last update on 1st July because really at this time of year anything other than sunny is very unusual. Now that I've just checked it I can confirm that still remains the case for the foreseeable future and temperatures will hover between a minimum of 21° and a maximum of 28°C (70° - 82°F) for the next week or so. The Ischia Film Festival finished last weekend and was another great success but if you missed it don't worry because of course we have another event just around the corner, the Ischia Global Film & Music Fest which usually attracts a few Hollywood A-listers starts on Sunday 15th July so keep an eye out for those and feel free to share any selfies of you with a celebrity on our Facebook page. Now I've really, really, really tried to avoid talking about football on this blog as I know not everyone likes it and this is after all a blog about Ischia, but.......as a long-suffering England fan, World Cup semi-finals don't come around very often and I'm personally finding it difficult to think about anything else at the moment. I've had lots of e-mails from people asking if the match will be on and where to watch it but please don't worry about that, it'll be on in lots of bars and restaurants all over the island so you'll have no shortage of options. If any of you need some ideas for a good spot to watch it just drop me a line and I'll be happy to provide some suggestions. With respect to any of our friends from Croatia I'm going to refrain from saying "COME ON ENGLAND", although arguably I just did! Ciao :-)
