The Scottish Experience

Incredibile ma vero! sono già passate tre settimane dal nostro ritorno dalla Scozia. Siamo partiti in venti e tornati in venti amici. I dei nordici hanno sorriso, più o meno, durante il nostro soggiorno, permettendoci di apprezzare la bellezza di Edimburgo e la serenita di Inverness con il sole, l’austero fascino dei castelli e degli Highlands senza pioggia e la cima di Ben Nevis (beh, quasi!) con una spruzzata di neve.

 

Ci siamo immersi nella cultura locale bevendo whisky e mangiano la fauna; haggis (non chiedere che cosa sia) fish (and chips!) e cervo! Abbiamo persino sentito una poesia composta in onore della gita dal nostro simpaticissimo amico Carlo, il quale ha fatto notare che tutto si è svolto in armonia e allegria grazie al gruppo straordinario. Ringraziamo Pietro Cabano per l’organizzazione impeccabile. Non vediamo l’ora di ripartire!!!
