Aug.15. Wh at a mess! Summer holidays in Italy: everybody goes swimming! Even myself who braved the oceans (eh, eh) now braves beaches crowded by dangerous local species: scoresof kids restlessly jumping into the water, old sun burned skin-divers who frantically crop mussels.
Looking for wild creatures? nothing but an occasional palombo (dogfish) which doesn’t hurt mankind in spite of being a shark. On the contrary the poor fish is hunted on account of its jucy flesh, so if you travel this side of the World, it would be hard for you to miss palombo as a soup ingredient!
