You have already seen, in these last days, that I had to cut the time I am spending on this blog, which is surviving barely. As I wrote a couple of months ago, I am trying to find an easier and less time-consuming way to peddle around our photos of Livorno. Some of us are already on Instagram, and I think many more will follow in due time. I am really sorry, but I won't be able anymore to comment on your blogs. See you on IG, if you wish...
