diario dell’anno della peste³

Had a fantastic fortnight in Venezia, when visiting Roberto Casarin at Ca’Foscari. Living in the immediate vicinity of the campus meant enjoying a very quiet part of the city, not that Venezia was particularly crowded (except for the weekend which happened to be the beginning of a low-key Carnevale). I also managed to join the local swimming pool and thus enjoy the earliest morn session, while Xing daily on the way back the same people walking their kids to school or going to work.Read A history of what comes next by Sylvain Neuvel and part of Comes tumbling down by Seanan McGuire. Both books free from Tor.com. The former was nothing close to great, with an alien twist to the space conquest history and incomprehensible goals for a line of superheroes… The latter was near incomprehensible, albeit a Hugo Award 2021, but it is only when writing this post that I realised this was the fifth volume in a series. It may be that I will make an attempt at the first later, despite this inauspicious start!

Watched two further Korean TV series, Inspector Koo and Mad Dogs, the former being more realistic and mature than other K dramas, albeit with a super intelligent duo and a desintegration of the scenario structure as the story unfolds. The later is much more standard and not particularly worth recommending.
