Happy halloween, my friends!


One of the last things I saw before leaving Florence
was a man dressed up as the devil...and when
I got to Copenhagen a woman was sitting in front of
me in the bus - she was also dressed as a devil...funny!

Happy halloween!

I'm back from Italy!


Hi old friends...hi new friends - welcome!!
I've read all your lovely comments...THAAANKS!
Once again you made me warm all over!

I had THE BEST holiday in Florence...I wish I could go back
right away! What a charming town!!! I stayed in the middle of the
city where my friend's flat is. All day long I went to museums,
stores etc. while my friend was working...and at
night we enjoyed ourselves eating good food..
can you ask for more? No!

Florence....






























I was there, too!
