Sure, it won’t never be Ernst SchÃ¤fer’s 1939 Tibet Expedition but it’s been a good way to break the annoying rainy week-end routines of these days. Geared with a plastic box and a small fishing net, portable light and rain jacket, after an early afternoon “patrol” at twilight i moved under the annoying rain trough the small and narrow lanes typical of the hills surrounding Genoa. Let’s omit the fact that here small flowerbeds are fenced Fort-Knox-Style and the several unsuccessful attempts.
Guided by the unique verse of the Mediterranean Tree Frog i decided to take the challenge and subtly enter into a private garden, open a huge water container and catch the frog with the net. Very brave!Â I Â made two session with the frog trying to harass it as little as possible.
