The amusement park

Cyclone roller coaster at Coney Island Amusement Park. Brooklyn, 1944 - Photographed by Marie Hansen

If you saw this tiny picture of me yesterday, you can imagine what a day full of adrenaline it was! Alf and I went with some friends to a big amusement park close to Lake Garda and we had so much fun on all the crazy roller coasters that today my legs are still shaking and my voice has practically gone with the last wild scream on the Blue Tornado ride.

Se ieri pomeriggio vi è capitato di vedere questa micro foto di me appesa a quasi 50 metri d'altezza, avrete immaginato che si sia trattato di un giorno pieno di adrenalina! Alf e io ci siamo svegliati presto, infilato un paio di Superga, shorts carini e via con i nostri amici a Gardaland! Ci siamo divertiti così tanto sulle montagne russe che oggi ho ancora le gambe molli e la mia voce mi ha definitivamente abbandonata con l'ultimo urlo selvaggio sul Blue Tornado.
