Homesick 2

I'm homesick.

Ohhhh, I don't want no more of army life! I want my little house.

We've had about two weeks of rain in this part of Italy. The Tiber has gone down quite a bit in the last few days and it seems to have slowed down, but I discovered that the apartment leaks.

Through. The. Walls.

Yes, the water, pelting down for days at a time, has actually just seeped through the ridiculous walls of our flat, that seem to have been constructed of cardboard and plaster, and into my room. Santa Marinella is supposed to be a summer resort town, where you are supposed to live out doors on the terrace for the most part, and only for a couple of months at a time. It is certainly not a place for those of us with hobbitish tendencies.
