Ponte di Ferragosto

However precious is the daily contact between Munich and Berlin thanks to the Skype IM app, it is always a joy to welcome Jessica when she can get away for a weekend. I find that her visit tends to give the month in question its indelible profile... imagery that will remain in my mind.

Mid-August can bring weather which invites lingering at an outside table as the sun sets and darkness falls. It's the time when Italy goes on holiday and even Monaco di Baviera seems almost abandoned. 

I wonder what Jessi's September visit will imprint on our visual memory? Will it evoke that autumnal 'back-to-school' mood? Whatever... I look forward to finding out she next comes to spend a few days with us.

Update... Nothing lasts!
