At about noon tomorrow,

I will have been living in Italy exactly one year.

Life is always going to be weirder than you expect.

No point making plans.

Speaking of feeling Italian, what are the Italian traits that you most differ from?

I speak quietly and think that speaking loudly is a mortal sin.

Also, I know that sequins, shiny vinyl, leopard skin print and clear plastic platform shoes with goldfish in them

are for little children.

They are a nation of magpies.

I can't find the post anywhere now! Send a postal address to and my copies of The Oldie (the subscription kicked in this month) can wend their way Romewards.
