We’ve been living in Cortona for over a month now, and I love pretending I’m a native. I’ve been to Italy 15 times over the last 18 years and said every time “damn, I want to stay longer than 2 or 3 weeks.” This time I finally got serious.
I’ve adopted a local persona. I buy food from the green grocer, wander the streets during the nightly passeggiata, and get a chill at the slightest provocation from the weather – meaning I’m always bundled up regardless of what the temperature is at the moment. 🙂
