Torno in Italia

Posted in Italy, Missing Italy, travels, vacation in Italy with tags , on July 26, 2009 by Robin Eller

I haven’t written my monthly post and July is over almost over. Mamma Mia! These days, it seems very difficult  to do everything that I would like to do. Non riesco a fare tutto pero’ provo da fare il meglio. I think my friend New York/Caribbean Ragazza would be proud of me for continuing to write no matter when I write on my blog.  I sure wish I was as remotely close to a good writer as she is; but it’s not my profession. I can’t wait to see her  Italia.  She’s been in Rome now more than a year and has made major progress in my opinion. It hasn’t always been easy but she’s living in Bella Italia. Come la invidio!!

Speaking of Italia: It’s that time of year again!! I’m gearing up for my trip to Italy. I have been so busy that I haven’t had a moment to think about my trip until now. Okay, where did the summer go?? I used to laugh when women older that were older than me would say My how time flies.” Sono d’accordo, come va il tempo!

Rhode Island

I found a fun article in the New York Post about the state of Rhode Island. The writer’s description of “Little Rhody”  brought back some childhood memories that I haven’t thought about in such a long time; especially the food you can find in Rhode Island e.g. clam cakes, quahogs, clam chowder, coffee ice cream, etc. You could never get me to eat half of this stuff now. Eating this type of food every day is just asking for a heart attack or sugar coma.  If you find yourself curious about the “non-tourist” side of Rhode Island, this is an article worth reading. And if you’re from Rhode Island, you might find yourself laughing out loud as I did.
