Now it’s November in Pisticci……keeping in touch.

I am just finding it funny that I have just whatsapped my daughter in Perth and told her that they will be level 3 . ( saw it on twitter) followed by the rules ( also on twitter) That’s not bad coming from a little hilltop village in the south of Italy.

I still remember when we came here. The computer fell out of the back of the removal truck so all we had were mobile phones which regularly cut off in the middle of conversations….for which I was paying dearly.

When we did get the computer fixed and a friend got us connected to the internet sometimes we got online sometimes not. I do remember getting a skype video call from my son who was in South America. I thought it was the most wonderful thing .

Now I am writing this blog on my phone . I check my bank account and make free whatsapp calls and send messages and photos for free. I watched live American TV during the election. I think it is like magic.

Right now its more important than ever.

Today I made 2 short videos of my little house and sent them via Whatsapp. Just like that!

I am thinking of putting more designs on Redbubble.com. where people in America have bought several items featuring images I have created.

Today there were more than 200 new cases of the virus in Basilicata. There was a very nice letter from the Sindaco saying how she was getting on and I couldn’t help contrasting her attitude to Boris Johnsons.

I need the local newsletter to keep me up to date with what is happening. I really don’t want to go uptown and find no one there because we have been locked down and I didn’t know.

It seems like the commune might be opening up again so maybe it will be 4th time lucky with my document . If not there is a definite possibility to email it.

So hurray for technology.( when it works)

And hurray for wine because it always ” works”.

Cheers 🍷🍷

Warm and cosy tonight……..

  1. I know we can’t compare apples to oranges, Bella, but in my city of Minneapolis we nearly topped 5,000 new cases of virus yesterday alone. This is madness…cannot wait for changing of the guards on Jan 20, 2021….it cannot come fast enough for me.

    Stay safe and well….we will get through this.
