Young Argentinians immigrant to Italy for a better life

Met a lot of Argentinians last summer in Perugia, Itala.

For many Argentinans, there is a sad irony in the fact that their great-grandparents emigrated to Argentina
to escape the poverty of their native Italy. Now, nearly a century later, it is Italy that beckons
as the land of opportunity. ''It's our history in reverse''.

Today, Argentina and Uruguay have the highest national concentrations of Italians
outside of Europe - about 50% of the population in each country.
Many of the Italian immigrants to Argentina were from Piedmonte(Torino), Veneto(Venice), Lombardia(Milano),
and later from Campania(Naples) and Calabria as well as other parts of Italy.

What an interesting comment.

The other day I read that Brits were leaving for Australia like mad, and hate it or love it, the USA is still a prime destination for immigration, legal or otherwise.

Retired Americans are leaving in droves to Latin America and the Caribbean as they can get by with their retirement cheques like royalty there.

I would imagine that as a country's standards go down, some people yearn for the old country. Are there Aussies or Canadians who want to go back "home"?

Ha! I'd LOVE to live in Germany, which is supposedly my "home country", even though it doesn't feel like it. So yeah, I'd go, but not just to go, I'd have to have some other, better reason for moving there. Like, a lot of money or something.

So Canada's still OK for you presently. Nevertheless, if Luc lowered your salary, you might be tempted to go back to work in "Der Travelpod".
