Italian Kids Eat Filled Rolls on School Trips

What’s wrong with a simple pasta salad?

It’s that time of the year again, when the school term is nearly over and schoolkids everywhere go on field trips to broaden their horizons and take selfies in jam-packed coaches. Florence, with all its art and museums, is a place of pilgrimage for endless field excursions: again and again you see groups of lanky teenagers, boisterous and unruly like a flock of sheep, following their teachers and tourist guides whose umbrellas stand erect above their heads like the flags of Arctic expeditions.

Me and the Italian God

It’s finding God that’s problematic for me.

I thought that I’d start 2015 by blogging about Life’s big truths. Such as God.

Unfortunately I don’t have much to say about God’s existence, except that I know He’s out there somewhere. I also know that people much wiser and more erudite than me have tried to argue for and against His existence, and if this is the Big Question haunting you, my blog is the last thing you should be reading right now.

No, it’s finding God that’s problematic for me.
