Let’s think positive. Stevie is going to meet an english guy who teaches the language to children (like Andrea, my little brother). In Italy. Near my house. Who is married to an italian woman and probably can understand the difficulties of living in two different countries, continously moving and never having a certain future [—-> because ok, I know I travel a lot, but honestly I was not chosing Ireland for ten consecutively times if I was going in holidays as everyone thinks].
It will happen nothing, for the hundredth time, ok. But at least it is a try. And to wish us good luck I drew this envelope for the little Andrea, that loves to draw and to play with Stevie: he will be the one giving Stevie’s message to the english teacher 🙂
We passed Saint Patrick’s in Derry/Londonderry and, in addition to the beautiful parade, there was the Food Festival; it was composed of a lot of stands with different typical irish foods. To chose what to eat was really not easy, but at the end I went for this:
Abbiamo passato San Patrizio a Derry e, oltre alla bellissima parata, c’era anche la fiera culinaria, composta da tanti stand con diversi cibi tipici irlandesi. Scegliere cosa mangiare non è stato facile, ma alla fine mi son buttata su questo:
Pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw, BBQ sauce and beetroot cream (delicious!)
Tea break, dinner, after dinner…whatever:
Guinness (yes, I know it’s strange after almost three years of Ireland, but this was the first time we went out and had Guinness!)
Last night’s movie: “Krokodyle” – Stefano Bessoni (2010)
It’s not easy to find a movie that both me and Stevie can enjoy and that he never watched before. Italian cinema is the best option, and he liked this strange movie a lot (so do I, and also it was a pain to find the dvd -____-’ ).

P.S. Stefano Bessoni is a director, a writer and an amazing illustrator, I love his work! Don’t forget to check it out on his site.
