Hello, my name is Inosho. I am couchsurfing in Italy.

The couchsurfing destination is a residential area in a place called Casal Maggiore near Parma

The couchsurfing destination is a residential area in a place called Casal Maggiore near Parma. It is a residential area a little far from the center of town, so it is a very quiet and calm place.

I think it will be fun if I get into agriculture, which seems to be a surprisingly deep field, such as the acidity of soil.

It may be that vegetables and foods from the farmland are sold directly at this supermarket. It is nice to be able to get fresh food at the supermarket.

This church reminds me somewhat of Cordoba in Argentina.

It is a residential area, so there are no tourist attractions, but we were able to see this church. This church reminds me somewhat of Cordoba in Argentina.

I realized that Argentina and Italy have strong historical ties, as the local people say. Well, I am Japanese, so I have nothing to do with the history of Argentina and Italy.

On this particular day, I went out to buy some groceries around 1:00 p.m., but none of the stores, including the aforementioned supermarket, were open.

In Italy, there is a tradition of taking a nap after lunch called siesta, so many stores close at noon. In big cities and city centers, many stores are open during the day, but here in this quiet residential area, the siesta tradition seems to be alive and well.

According to our Couchsurfing host, the stores are supposed to reopen around 3:30 p.m., so we’ll try again around that time.
