Yep, it's mad, isn't it? Yes, they are 'statali' so civil servants. At times it drives me mad. However, slowness in this camp is all part of the territory. I wouldn't have a nice laid back lifestyle if everything worked like it did elsewhere. I'll be posting updates here.

Julie, it's such a lovely story, isn't it? I wanted to share it because it hit such a nerve with me.

I used to burn the candle at both ends, too. But Sardinia rather put a stop to that. I'm very chilled out these days. I'm about to sign up for your podcasting mails. Mario and I are definitely up for some podcasting at Will be a fantastic addition to How to Italy. Emma

Ciao Lula You say you've been to six schools. Which type of school are you looking for? An environment that makes you feel that you are part of an Italian community or one that offers business and exam courses? As you know, all schools vary so it's a good idea to know what you want from the school first. Perhaps if we know more about what you are looking for, people here will be able to help. Ciao Emma

C.D Walsh - I'm pleased you like the new blogsite. As for typos, please don't take offence at Mario's errors. Remember he is Italian and he is writing in his second-language. As for me, guilty your honour! I'm not trying to excuse myself here but the last few days have been spent constantly switching between Italian and English and when that happens my grammar goes to pot because I'm mixing grammar and idioms. Once I get back to some intensive days of full-on English writing, my grammar will be up to speed again. And that's a promise.
