Oh, it’s good to be back home on the Amalfi Coast. Since moving here many years ago, I’ve never traveled back to America in the summer. After enjoying warm weather, sunshine, fresh picked sweet corn and BLTs in Nebraska, I realize what I’ve been missing. But then I come home and see colors like this and I remember just how sweet summer is here, too. (But, unfortunately, without corn.) The weather has been gorgeous this past week, showing off the best of summer with temperatures not too hot, a sea breeze and relatively low humidity. We couldn’t ask for a better last hurrah of summer.
This picture reminded me of the famous song “Volare,” which is the popular name for “Nel blu dipinto di blu.” The name translates to: “In the Sky, Painted Blue,” and was written by the great songwriter Domenico Modugno. I shared it earlier this week on Instagram. If you’re on Instagram, you can find me @ciaoamalfi, where I share photos of the Amalfi Coast, Toulouse being cute and a variety of cooking adventures.
