Oh I've been to Padua for five months. I had the best time of my life there. I met a lot of italian people obviously
and what stroke was their unpredictability (I have to say that I almost only met young people as I was on an Erasmus trip). They take their time and don't have any schedule. As I already mentioned, I said one evening that I was tired and did not want to go anywhere nor do anything and somehow we came back home at 6 in the morning lol.
You can become their friend very easily too. I didn't speak a word of italian at the beginning but they accepted me very easily (even though they don't speak a word of english or french
) and I appreciated that a lot. And once you're their friend, they'll do anything for you (you have to do the same in return
They also taught me all the bad words first
They talk a lot with their hands (and that is not a cliche). I caught that habit. I often do that gesture where you join your thumb and your forefinger and shake your hand (Mamma mia
They shouldn't be allowed to drive cars though. I got really scared a lot of times. It's like they all drive Ferraris
and they are ALWAYS late
I'd say the same as David about their soccer team though
(Spero che gli altri non legeranno questo
But to finish on a better note, italian girls are very very cute and know how to dress. You rarely see them wear loose clothes.
More to come later
