It is now just over two weeks since we arrived in the Stazione Centrale on the first warm day of the season. It appears the real summer weather began on our arrival. The last few days saw thunderstorms and the hot humid air changing to brisk sea breezes. We are learning more about the city through walks and taking care of the day to day chores.

It was nice to not have to recreate from those sources. Connectivity like the sun is a bit limited by our interior location.
