It's Great To Be Back So I Could Tell You How Much I Wish To Be Back In Italy

Now I'm back in La Grande Mela.  I'm still on Italian time and, really, want to stay on it for as long as I can.  I'm not talking, of course, about being six hours later than New York, but about living like an Italian.  

Of course, for my first meal back, I had two bagels.  I mean, after being in Italy, what was I going to eat in New York--pizza? Pasta?

I'm going to tell you more--and share those photos that would still be uploading had I tried to share them in Italy!--after I redecorate my apartment:

and take a nice Italian-style lunch break!


  1. What are you going to have the first thing in NY after having been in Italy? A good friend of mine who runs a fine restaurant in Florence. He says that the Italians have lost the leadership in pizza, and that the Americans are the guardians of quality pizza now. "You wanna a good. pizza? Go to New York. Never buy a pizza in Italy." Yes: a NY pizza to cap off a trip to Italy.


  2. Phillp--Now that dates us, doesn't it?

    Leo--I got home late at night, so I didn't eat until the following morning. So, the first thing I ate was a bagel--with mozzarella cheese, a tomato slice and fresh-ground black pepper. Only in NYC, right?
