Since this blog is a love letter not only to my adopted home of Italy, but also to my forever motherland of Alberta, Canada, I've been curating lovely photographs taken by friends and fellow Albertans of where I used to live. The photo above is of one of my former classmates and pharmacy colleagues, Chanelle; see more work by the photographer on Instagram (@willsonphotography_). Also, yesterday, the field right outside Massi's parents' house was being worked and there were actually bales of hay and tractors in the mix. It was fun to see the Italian farmers out there, shirts off. It's not like they had the flag tattooed on their backs, but the men here somehow inexplicably exude "Italian". Maybe it was the long hair, tied back into a high-fashion-magazine worthy pony tail, the lack of plaid, or the vintage-cool tractor? Boh (that's Italian for "dunno" but ten times more fun to say, give it a try and you won't be able to stop!). Have a great start to the week and if you happen to be from Alberta and have some killer photographs to share, send me an e-mail or tweet me up (@questadolcevita) and I'll share.
