Foliage on Lake Winnipesaukee

The foliage period, when trees start to change colour and prepare for winter, attracts many tourists to the Boston area.

This weekend, those who have chosen to do Full Immersion with me are lucky enough to be able to take a ride around Lake Winnipesauke on a train that takes tourists to White Mountain, along a four-hour loop route, to see the explosion of color in the surrounding forests and the valley.

Today I have the pleasure to accompany them and since by now I am also known by the local people here in New Hampshire, I am lucky to be able to have the opportunity to visit the locomotive. Something that has the atmosphere of an ancient and powerful mistery. In America the railway lines are almost all powered by diesel engines, there are no electric poles, so the experience is even more enjoyable, thanks to the low frequency hum of the engine.

This year it’s too late, but you still have time to book for next year!

The ten songs to sing this Halloween season

We are at the beginning of the increasingly celebrated Halloween period, a holiday of ancient and dark origin that is celebrated on the night of October 31 and November 1.

When it comes to singing it is always important to have the right inspiration so I decided to share with you the atmosphere that surrounds me here in the United States. Then at the end of the article, if you really have no idea what to sing, I’ll tell you the ten best songs to sing on Halloween!

When I walk through the streets of the suburbs of Boston, I always find beautiful houses with gardens, windows, doors and balconies decorated with something reminiscent of the festivities. The funniest are huge black inflatable cats, taller than the house, or skeletons with cloaks waving in the air hanging from a tree. Once I even met a fake hanged man: he really made an impression on me! The atmosphere is completed by the scented candles that are lit every night inside the pumpkins carved in the shape of a monstrous head.
Even restaurants and fast food chains are showing their restyling for the event, for example at Starbucks they have created a drink for the occasion I love: spicy pumpkin latte!

When I pass by Salem, the city of the Witches, I meet people who seem to have come out of time, dressed in long tunics and high pointed hats, colorful and uneven stockings. Even the accessories are kept in the highest care for example I loved a hair clip in the shape of a skeleton hand!
