An Italian with broken shoulders automatically loses his power of speech!! Those grave “Si Si Si” just does not carry as well without the wild gesticulations with their shoulders and hands… 🙂

    I feel the same about Indians. They cannot speak without moving their head back and forth. I remember being very confused at first when I asked a yes/no question. LOL

    Rajib, in Milan airport it struck me that if Italy could find a way to convert the typical Italian airport cell phone speaker’s hand gesticulations into energy, they would have the strongest economy in the EU

    While not a honeymoon trip, our first time in Rome, same two phrases as Shilpa. Worked like a charm over a week.

    On your other post, I was mentioning the old Italian Job film because it briefly shows some of the excellent landscapes of italy. You see, and you say “Sì, questo è il posto giusto.” (Google translate)
