Wide Awake

4:00am – Why the f*** am I awake?! I was sooo tired just a few hours ago.

I fake it for a while and just lay there with my eyes closed for the next two hours in a vain attempt to convince myself that I’m asleep. I doesn’t really work.

6:00am – Who says Italians aren’t early risers? They’re setting up the market outside our window right now. They are not being quiet. Nancy wakes up around this time and we pretend together for another hour.

7:00am – The sun rises and we step our onto our balcony and enjoy the view, now coming into full sunlight. Che belissima!
