Arrabaldes de Milão segunda feira à noite, 25 de abril, feriado é dia da liberdade aqui também. Podia ter corrido pior: se há coisa que os italianos sabem fazer é pizza. Escusei-me a experimentar a cozinha chinesa.

As the British in general and the English in particular entertain themselves self consumed with the in/out brexit drama I proceed with settling down nicely in multi ethnic west London 12.
