2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 25 trips to carry that many people.

German study or Italian eating? @”Il pomodorino” #Radolfzell am Bodensee

Well, I am in Radolfzell on the Bodensee Lake to improve my German.
We are in Germany, not far from Switzerland border… Thus the restaurants are nearly all Italians… Then I found one restaurant run by people of Calabria region… which is the one where my family come from… In the end, instead of studying, I am eating… Nochmal (again).

Sunday at #Chur (#Coira) – The oldest town in #Switzerland

Due to a unnatural nice whether, we decided to take a drive nearby to the Swiss Alps, in Chur.

From Wikipedia

Chur or Coire (pronounced [ˈkuːr] in Graubünden and outside of Switzerland but [ˈxuːr] in other cantons of Switzerland; Alemannic German: Khûr; Romansh: Cuira [ˈkwerɐ] or [ˈkwoi̯rɐ]; Italian: Coira [ˈkɔi̯ɾa]; French: Coire [ˈkwaʁ]; Latin: CVRIA, CVRIA RHAETORVM and CVRIA RAETORVM) is the capital of the Swiss canton of Graubünden and lies in the northern part of the canton. Chur is situated at the right shore of the Rhine-River and is known as the oldest town of Switzerland.
Archaeological evidence of settlement at the site, in the Eastern Alps, goes back as far as the Pfyn culture[3] (3900-3500 BC),[4] making Chur one of the oldest settlements in Switzerland. Remains and objects from the Bronze and Iron Ages have been found also in the eastern sector of the current city’s centre.

We find also a very interesting restaurant where to taste the regional specialities like The Capuns (sausages wrapped in beet leafs) and the Bizochels (noodles with herbs and cheese).

Making of #2014 #NewYear’s #Eve homemade #Pasta Orecchiette

Hosted by a Puglia’s family. Decided to document how to prepare the traditional local pasta noodles: orecchiette pugliesi.

Of course made only with semolina (no soft wheat flour) and tap water. First, preparation of the dough, then homemade work out of orecchiette, one by one.
Dressing: Napoli’s tomato sauce: ragù alla napoletana…
Meat cooked for hours to better with tomato sauce….
