Moving to another country is interesting, infuriating, exciting, difficult, fun –  it stretches the mind and opens the eyes. 

This blog will explore life as lived by an outsider in one of the most beautiful corners of the earth, the Italian Riviera.  How do customs here differ from those of our home country (the US)?  What ideas do we take for granted which have no currency here?  Where can we get (or how do we make!) a great bowl of pasta al pesto?

This will be a ‘sometimes’ blog.  Comments are welcome, especially if you have news or views from the Portofino peninsula and the neighboring Ligurian towns.
