Outside my window everything is white. No, no, not more snow. During my first winter on the Amalfi Coast I was surprised by the amount of clouds that seem to just get stuck in the mountains along the coast. This happens other parts of the year, but it seems to happen most often in the winter. Day after day can go by when I look out the window and see nothing but white! You can see the low cloud cover today in the Amalfi webcam shot below:
This winter has been particularly rainy and overcast, and the clouds are unfortunately back today after a nice period of clear weather. Looking out the window just now, I was reminded of the scene from Federico Fellini’s Amarcord where the boys dance in the fog. As I tried to fix my eyes on the neighboring villa, with the clouds and mist literally blowing in the open window, the enchanting theme song from Amarcord starting going through my head. Winter on the Amalfi Coast, whether sunny or cloudy, still seems to be somehow magical.
