That would be me, Mrs. Moglie. Married to a native Italian, Mr. Marito.
Mother to a daughter in high school, Ms. SmartyPants and a son in middle school, Mr. Uometto.
Employed at a private British School as an English teacher and Coordinator of Children's Studies.
Part of a small, but growing Protestant church in Frascati, a small town in the hills just outside of Rome.

This is where I sometimes gripe, complain and grumble about the things I dislike, have yet to get used to or simply don't understand about bella Italia.
I do, however, have many people, places and things that I dearly love and I am more than aware of being blessed by each and every one of them.
Also - a few helpful posts for visitors to Rome or for newly arrived ex pats. Check the side bar for tags. I've even some recipes that I've borrowed, tweaked or invented. One thing I've come to love about Italy is how it's changed the way I eat - slow food !! Although ... I do miss Taco Bell ... and Jack in The Box ... and KFC ... and ::sigh::
Thanks for stopping by !!

Traffic Laws Are Merely Suggestions

I've seen my share of bad driving, bad parking and bad road manners. I thought I'd seen it all. I was wrong.

parking spaces are for LOSERS
I was on my way to my father-in-law's house, early one morning, and I saw this car stopped in the middle of an intersection. I was ready to call 118 (Italy's 911) on my mobile, certain that someone had had an accident, or a heart attack. Silly me. The car was empty, as is often the case with parked cars. Expecting and dreading the thought I'd find someone hunched over the steering wheel and instead learning it was just an odd choice of parking space left me more than a little dazed and confused.

No emergency rescue needed, I took a photo instead.

On the Bright Side
