It was the coldest winter this winter around January 15th.
The weather forecast for smartphones is minus 23 degrees.
The ice on the river flowing through the city would have thickened at once.
As I walk outside, the breath that leaks from my mask makes my lashes freeze.
A snowplow with a large rotating brush scrapes the frozen snow.
Salt and sand are sprinkled on the frozen roads to prevent falls on the sidewalks.
Thanks to that, I won't fall, but the entrance is full of sand, and my leather shoes will soon be ruined ...
It is such a northern country, living in the midwinter.

Procida Island has many maze-like paths. It's fun to walk around the city without hesitation, but Procida isn't just about colorful and cute buildings.

It is a place where you can enjoy the "life feeling of the islanders".
Houses drying laundry are lined up, islanders gather on the terrace with a view of the harbor, grandfather sells vegetables from the fields on the road, fishermen clean nets and boats It is a heartwarming island that cannot be seen in urban areas that are famous for sightseeing.

The excavation work that began in 2019 at the Pompeii ruins has created a new "fast food" store counter. It will be available from next year!
I was really thrilled when I saw it on the documentary show last night. It's been a while since I was so excited.
The archaeological site manager said, "This is the first case in which we were able to excavate the exact same thing (at that time)."
This counter is called "Thermopolium".
The extraordinary features of this discovery are the excellent preservation of the pictorial decoration of the room and the food debris found along with the human bodies and animal bones of the two victims of the eruption.
The two ducks hung upside down would have been used for the dishes on the menu.
At the bottom of the dorio (wine container), the presence of ground broad beans in wine to change the taste and color was confirmed.
The dog tied to the leash was probably used as a guard dog, like the famous Beware of the Dog mosaic, which is a symbol of Pompeii.
This latest discovery shows that the archaeological site of Pompeii still tells a lot about 2000 years later.
We are waiting for you at this wonderful fast food restaurant.
May the day come soon!
