Fond memories of Italy again, irresistible! I cannot speak the Italian language except for basic phrases (grazie, prego, bellissima) and, while I can remember an occasional phrase for a short while, I have all but given up learning this Latin based lingo. However, my friend Patrizia is encouraging me to learn a bit more and I'm enjoying a book or two written by Tim Parks (an English gentleman who has lived and worked in Italy for 30 years) in which I can pick up a phrase here and there. The moral of this story: (1) never give up on learning something new and (2) visit Italy, for goodness sakes, do you know what you are missing?
