New perspective - Una nuova visuale

I've rented a tiny studio inside Ceglie for the next two months. The apartment I am currently in, kindly loaned to be by dear friends for the last nine months (!) is outside of the main part of town and since I can not drive here yet, since my knee went whacko 7 months ago, and since my place in the country is not ready yet, I've decided that it would be fun to spend at least 4 or 5 nights a week in town so I can go to the driving school's theory lessons from 7 pm to 8 pm and so I can attend the many events that take place during the summer in the town square, but usually do not start until 9 or 10 pm.

Here are some photos of my new nest: notice the high vaulted ceilings, the incredibly and typically steep stairs leading up to the living area, and the very tiny, but cute kitchen. Better duck when I take that last step, since I am quite accident prone!

Ho affittato un piccolo monolocale dentro Ceglie per i prossimi due mesi. L'appartamento in cui mi trovo adesso, generosamente prestatomi ormai da nove mesi (!) da cari amici e` fuori dalla parte principale del paese e siccome ancora non posso guidare qui, siccome il mio ginocchio ha dato i numeri 7 mesi fa, e poiche` casa mia in campagna non e` ancora pronta, ho deciso che sarebbe stato divertente passare almeno 4 o 5 notti la settimana in paese, cosi` posso andare alle lezioni di scuola guida che si tengono dalle 1700 alle 2000 e posso partecipare ai molti eventi che hanno luogo nella piazza e nel borgo antico in estate, ma che spesso non iniziano prima delle 2100 o 2200. 


Ecco alcune foto del mio nuovo nido: notate i soffitti a volta, le tipiche e incredibilmente ripide scale che portano in casa e la piccolissima, ma tanto carina cucina. Meglio che faccio attenzione alla capoccia quando salgo l'ultimo gradino, in quanto sono abbastanza imbranata!

I ended up having to give up this little studio because I let my feelings about how cute it was overrule my reason: I knew those stairs were too steep for me! It's ok though because it was only intended for a couple of months. I hope that my own place will soon be ready to live in...
