Welcome back, Rachel!
Hello Rachel, nice to hear from you again! How are you and how’s your family? Does you daughter already write on her blog? The St. John University looks really nice. I adore English Campuses because they’re all rich in green spaces, spaces in which students and teachers are able to walk around and to meet each other (am I right?). Your photos have brought me to mind of Peter Weir’s “Dead Poets Society”, which was (when I used to be a child :) ) one of my favourite movies. The story is set at a fictional American Academy and it was filmed at St. Andrew’s School in Delaware. Probably your campus is completely different from this school, but my child memories make them so similar.
Today I’d like to show you Popper’s sons and daughters.

Popper is my fantastic black and white female dog. Some years ago (maybe 7), I was coming back home from my High School in Padula. It was snowing and it was a very cold day. I was waiting for the bus with some friends of mine when I heard a strange noise coming from the guard-rail. As I approached it I could see something black moving in the snow. It was a little puppy dog! I took and brought it at home with me. I immediately called it “Popper”! I don’t remember why… probably because in those days I was reading something about Karl Popper… anyway I was certain it was male and Popper seemed to me a very good name for my dog. Two days later my mother saw it was not exactly a male… but I would not change its name! Now Popper is the mom of six fantastic puppies…
See you soon…
P.S. Hi Filippo! Yes, with “graduated course” I meant I’m doing “la specialistica” :) About the football, although I live in Turin, I’m a supporter of Lazio! Bye!
