The five things I miss about the United States
Qualche tempo fa il mio amico Gianluca Pezzi mi ha coinvolto in un meme dal titolo "Le 5 cose che mi mancano degli Stati Uniti" che ha suscitato in me parecchi ricordi piacevoli legati alla mia lunga permanenza negli USA.
Dato il carattere vagamente internazionale di questo post, ho deciso di scriverlo in inglese. Non me ne vogliano i miei lettori abituali.
Having been pretty much of a resident for no less than a couple of years, almost settled down as a husband-to-be (that actually never was, at least not in the States), I had the chance to experience some of the treats that living in the US brought along (probably the most superficial ones) and that I sincerely miss for being an "Italian living in Italy".
So, as my friend Gianluca pointed out, there are many little things to love about America.
Here I am mentioning just a few of them:
But I do believe there may be other people who can share similar memories about the States, so I am inviting those who are willing to take this meme into notice to share their memories on their own blogs and to comment here to let me know they did (maybe Deirdré or Shelley would like to be the first ones to comply?). Anyway, a link back would be granted to all.
The only rule of this meme, stated by Gianluca itself, is not to write about specific important places of interest, because it would be too easy to write about stuff like the Golden Gate bridge or the Statue of Liberty for instance.
