My cousin Gary and I have kept in touch ever since we were little kids. His wife Maria, and her family, are all from Italy. They’ve been living in this country for more than fifty years.
Never having been to Italy, I’m just assuming, but I always get the impression, whenever I visit them, that that’s what things must be like over there. It’s a world of fattening food, home made wine, and constant accordion music. I’ve even been trying to learn as much Italian as possible, so I can keep up with them.
