A great organization 250,000 bikes in a sunny and warm Galveston. For the details: you can watch the news  and for the pictures just follow […]

September’s gone – Houston’s Strong

September’s gone – Houston’s Strong

November 5, 2018

Temperatures dropped 40 degrees in a couple of weeks meaning that the hurricane season is over. September’s gone (also October!) and this year no harm to Houston: Harvey’s memory still hurts but ‘HoustonStrong‘ is not just another slogan, it’s the way Texans live their lives.

The Texan dangerous fauna has always been one of the main concerns here. Saudi Arabia did not have much more than what we were used to in Italy and in 3 years we have not seen anything that could represent a risk to us other than a few packs of dogs around the compound. But […]

The weekend has been planned by Marta: her choice is hard for me to accept but I don’t have alternatives.
