From the rainy Amalfi Coast I landed late last week in snowy Nebraska. I did at first feel a bit “walled about with drifts of snow,” and was reminded of Longfellow’s poem about Amalfi. But the wintry white landscape is beautiful and certainly different from what we see on the Amalfi Coast. When it does actually snow, it never sticks around quite like this.


A week before I left it did snow on the Amalfi Coast for the first time this winter. I’ll share the photos and videos of the beautiful nighttime sugar snow on the Amalfi Coast soon. In the meantime, howdy to all of my readers from Nebraska!

    Both the sunny Amalfi coast and snowy plains of Nebraska can be appreciated for the wonders that they are. Have a great visit.

    Ciao my darling friend. Ironically, it's now warm and sunny in the Eternal City, I haven't had the guts to ask down south to my Costiera friends, in fear that they might report of folks swimming.
    Easter plans are shaping, and I can't wait to meet over delizie al limone and scialatielli…

    Ciao and keep warm!
