On Italian soil, at last!

Yes, I arrived yesterday! Although I cried a lot on the plane, the happiness settled in until we landed. Lorenzo came and picked me up from the airport so I didn't have to take any trains or buses. The farm is really big, and on Wednesday we will start picking up the olives. We had dinner together and I thought I was in a gastronomical heaven! Every bite was an adventure, just like I had imagined! Peppers stuffed with tomatos and cheese and then bolonaise with homemade pasta! And dessert for the end! There's a lovely American chef cooking for us, he's been living in Italy for 8 years. It's raining but it's like heaven, Tuscania is a lovely medieval town and it's only 10 minutes from the farm. I feel blessed. I feel happy, everything is so... new! I'm a tourist but I'm not... if you know what I mean...

The landscape here is really interesting, really wavy, with little hills. No big mountains and no flat land. It's like being in a wavy sea, but it's on earth... And you can see the medieval town across from the farm. It looks very much like Skyros, I live behind the barn and I can see horses from my window...

And there's another girl with me, an American 25 year old lady who lives in Alaska and is very interested in educating the Americans on how to eat.

This morning we are canning last year's olive oil and we will wash the big tanks to be ready for this year's oil... It's all very interesting!

As I get settled, I will start uploading some pictures so be patient...

Thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, I never forget anyone. Be good, follow your heart!

Here is the link to the farm...
