Finally, we entered Italy.
After 16 months and 90.000 km around the world we arrived back to the country of the contradictions. We have been dreaming about this moment.
Actually, the first impressions were a bit different from what we expected!
In the first 20 km we risked 2 car accidents and we had 10 people sending us “affanculo” (literally “go to sell your ass in the street”…)…then we increased our cruise speed a little bit and things got better ;-D.
We found a lot of bad surprises, starting from the price of diesel (the highest in the world!), to a lot of people asking for money in the streets and finishing with a general feeling of insecurity.
BUT, BUT, BUT fortunately there is something that is compensating for ALL of this: THE FOOD!!!
We are struggling with large amounts of pizza, cassate, babá, pastiere, struffoli, cannoli, mozzarelle, caci cavallo, sfogliatelle, taralli!!!!! A real Marathon!!!!
