Sixteen degrees at 8am. Bright sunshine. And up here on The Rock, a gentle laundry-drying breeze.
The other day in Conad Supermarket, Cannobio. Prime walnuts, price €8.95 per kilo. Price includes first class shipping by Noberasco some 11,000km from Argentina.
Part of what's wrong with the world.
Today in Carmine Superiore. Just-fallen walnuts, price €0.00 per kilo. Price includes a breath of mountain air to pluck them from the tree, 15 minutes gathering, first class transport 300m down the hill from the prato, and a day on the windowsill drying in the autumn sun.
Part of what's right with Carmine Superiore.
