my blogging strategy // thoughts on trieste

In Life in Italy on November 2, 2010 at 7:58 pm

I always fall behind on blogging: I get too distracted by life to take time to write about it.  But, I’ve again moved to a new place–this time to Italy!–and will do my best to keep you all up to date. I think this time I’ll try writing shorter posts more frequently.  You’ll have to hold me to it, though.

As you might have guessed from the title of this blog, I’m also going to write a bit about food, because I’ve moved to a place full of heaping amounts of delicious goodness. Keep your eyes peeled for stories (and recipes?) to come.

But first: a quick update. Life is going great in Trieste! The city is surprisingly gorgeous (si uno dei miei amici triestini legge questo post, mi dispiace–non speravo tanto della città prima di venire, ma sono molto contento). Somehow I always manage to find myself in multi-national, multi-dimensional places, and Trieste is just that: a city on a border. It has been part of many different countries in the past, and consequently, its inhabitants are not only Italians but also Slovenians and folks coming from other former-Yugoslavian nations. Trieste was also a major Austrian port in the past, and much of its current architecture reflects that. The downtown/coast area is gorgeous. Check out Albert’s pictures of the city:
