  • The sexy topless-sunbathing neighbor, or the admonishments to local wives to stop complaining and take better care of their men-folk?



    • Yes. My neighbourhood has the women saying "You must come around to my place next Tuesday. We're having a birthday party for the Baby Jesus!" and squealing at each other in delight.

      Oh, and bank robber chases through back yards []. That happened just across the main road from us. But no sexy topless sunbathers or admonishments to give up some lovin', no.


  • This reminds me of a very nice song by Fabrizio de Andre`. The song's title is "Bocca di rosa", and you can find the lyrics here [] (in italian, tho'). "Bocca di Rosa" is literally "Mouth of rose", I think an acceptable english version could be "Rosemund". I can try to translate some lines...

    She was called Rosemund
    she put love, she put love
    She was called Rosemund
    she put love on everything

    When she arrived at the railway station
    in St. Ilario little town
    everybody realized with a glimpse
    she was not a missionary
