The wonderful thing about living in a foreign country is that everything is fresh and new. There are a world of new foods to be eaten and towns to explore. And the wonderful thing about living in Italy is that they have some serious craftsmanship around here, and if you're close enough to the center of it all, you can find some really marvelous things for incredibly cheap. I like both inexpensive and well-made things, which always doesn't work out on my favor — apparently Italy is the cure.
