In Rome, where I live now, it is getting warmer and warmer day by day. I feel that spring is just around the corner. The other day, I bought several lovely scarves which would go well with my spring clothes. Look at the photo! The pink flowers and small hearts are creating a spring atmosphere.
On 6th February, I participated in a cooking event called “Cooking Challenge,” which was organized by the Rotary Club in Rome. The event was held at a vocational school for hotel management in the outskirts of Rome. When I arrived there, students dressed in uniforms welcomed me at the reception.
Separating garbage has become quite common in many countries. This is also adopted in Rome, where I live now. I take empty plastic bottles to a collection point every weekend, and always think how they will be recycled.
I take piano lessons in Rome. I go to my piano teacher’s studio once a week. As he is a pianist and harpsichordist, he teaches both piano and harpsichord. I am “privileged” to see (and sometimes touch) the harpsichord, though it is only the piano on which I actually take lessons. In his studio, I always feel as if I am in a music museum.
The year 2020 has just started! How did you welcome the new year?
