La bella Catania


Today I spoke with my aunt, who comes from Mauritius but has lived in the picturesque Sicilian town of Catania for 35 years. She wants to come visit us here in Ilford.

Totally tortelloni


For dinner today I had tortelloni (stuffed egg pasta) filled with Italian ham and sausage. Very delicious. Followed that up with a traditional British cream slice. Great food and a globetrotting tongue. I may not be a masterchef but my stomach is happy.

Pulling faces with Mona Lisa

Being all kinds of silly with probably the most famous portrait in Western art history, the Mona Lisa of Leonardo da Vinci, the Italian Renaissance painter and inventor (1507).

Essendo tutti i tipi di sciocco con probabilmente il più famoso ritratto della storia dell’arte occidentale, la Monna Lisa di Leonardo da Vinci, il pittore e inventore italiano del Rinascimento (1507).
