Buongiorno a tutti! We've had all sorts of things going on this week in Ischia, not just because of the Libeccio and Scirocco winds giving the island's cars a light dusting of sand but also the parades, concerts and today's Carnevale celebrations. "Martedì Grasso" ("Mardi Gras" worldwide) marks the period of 40 days before Easter and across the island people are going to parties, meeting up with friends and above all, dressing up in all manner of costumes. A quick walk around Forio town centre this morning drew an above average number of encounters with princesses, Spidermen and a variety of animals. The aforementioned winds have now subsided to a light breeze and this morning's sunshine has given way to clouds and a temperature of 15° Celsius (59° Fahrenheit). Ciao :-)
