Wonderful city, real vacations: cosa voglio di + dalla vita?

Again, I'll be brief! I know, I know: it seems the only thing I can write about lately: my lack of time! If it's getting annoying for you who are reading...well, you can't imagine how stressful this has been for me! Anyway, let's talk of good things: I spent the last week end at Rio de Janeiro and i loved it! Well, first of all I had the chance to run away from my work (thank God! I really needed a few time off), then I had the chance to really see [part of] the most famous Brazilian city, I got to meet an old friend of mine, I had the possibility to train my spoken English with a German couple and some Americans and English and I traveled by ferryboat ;P Nice, ain't it?
Well, I can only say that everybody should visit Rio: it's a great city with a nice atmosphere...
Actually, I didn't actually see the "touristc Rio": I had access to another angle of the city, as you can see from the unusual pic of the famous Sugar don't find this kind of pics on postcards!
Well, that's it: thanx Elisa for the trip, thanx Alex for coming with me, thanx to technology for the photos and thanx Rio for being not too far from here!
That's it!
cheers :)
Hope you can take advantage of you holidays much more than I can...

We are the champions...

Campioni del mondoooooooo!!

Queen - We Are The Champions

I've paid my dues
Time after time
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through
We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world
I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You brought me fame and fortuen and everything that goes with it
I thank you all
But it's been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
And I ain't gonna lose
We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world!

...I don't think I need any other words to describe this moment! It turned out that Elisa, Sylvia and Emmanuele were right after all - thank God! That was the spirit Italy needed! Congratulations both to the team and their supporters :)
PS. I have to say the team should be congratulated for two reasons: they were good players on the one hand, but the were above all very, very, very HOT men! At least this time the World Champions look very nice in the pics! - I think all the girls agree with me ;)

In Italy we Brazil not any more...

Here I am again...Time is something we never least, not as much as we want, but I had to make some efforts in order to write about Brazil (sad news come first) and Italy (the good news).
Ok, about Brazil there's not much to say...there's just a lot to be angry about! What the he** was that? Do they call it a game? For most Bazilians it was just a shame...a shame for the team, a shame for what they call the best players in the world, a shame for everybody who trusted in the HEXA (and I can tell you a lot of people wanted it badly)...Well, I just think the players should think more of the support they get from the people than of the money they get from the brands they wear...not to say the illegal money they may have gotten to lose the game that way...Ok, nobody can prove anything, so let's just drop it and think of the good news...ITALY!!
I must say it was quite a surprise for me: Italy in the finals? Well, evrybody must agree with me that Italy didn't show any excellent performance in its first matches...who would have ever thought it would go so far?
Well...let's see what happens tomorrow between Portugal and France...hope Portugal wins, because France...well, I don't like it!
And for the finals, I can just say I'm starting to trust Italy again!! As Elisa said: Go Italy!!!
