These past two days have flown by. Maybe that is because of the time change, but it has my head spinning! Just getting off the plane was inspiring, seeing the Italian words and graphics on the airport walls. Unlike columbia, advertisements were everywhere, billboards and posters of all kinds. They were a mixture of English and Italian languages which was surprisingly hospitable. You don't see ads fully in Spanish around SC often. This has made me think about the hospitality of America and wether we are as welcoming to the immigrants and travelers as we should be.
Besides the debateable political thoughts I was inspired to have, I loved seeing the small homey streets and how compact everything was. From cars to homes, everything was economized...and I love simplicity. It was endearing to see the quaint fiats driving around Rome versus the audacious and large 'merica cars like trucks and SUVs.
