How to keep cool in Italy

During Lucifer, the so-called heat wave that is burning up Europe, or during any summer season, Italians flock to il mare.  It’s relatively easy to do, since the long, narrow bel paese is surrounded by water.

I was on the Italian riviera myself over the weekend, seeking cooler air and beautiful vistas, and I was very entertained by the “let it all spill out” attitude on view.  See for yourself!

My friend and I dined in a lovely seaside restaurant, feasting on shrimp, calamari and clams, and were mightily entertained by the casual dress– and lack thereof– on display.  I was confronted with more bare skin from more usually unbared areas of more bodies past their prime than I want to remember!
