i’m in capri for a job: not like maldives. today i was on a beach and there was a gentleman that just came back from the sea with goggles, fins and a small knife. he came back with a small basket full of sea urchins , the brown one. i’ve noticed him, i told i envied him a lot, i gave him a nice smile, i brought him a slice of water melon, i revealed to him that although i was from milan i was born in liguria (so i knew and appreciated the delicacies fresh from the sea), maybe i also prostrate myself (no, it wasn’t necessary) …. well at the end this nice gentleman invited me to taste his freshly caught urchins. he handled them with bare hands, opened with scissors, cleaned well and rinsed in the sea. a drop of lemon and the whole mediterranean sea exploded in my mouth. the kind gentleman also had some iced white wine in a carafe with sliced peaches inside. and in the meantime those.
in the meantime those assholes at the maldives are eating defrosted salmon …..
