Things I learned in Italy today:
1. Don't smile to strangers. It's not friendly West Coast Cali up in here.
2. Dogs here don't bark.
3. McDonald's is hella nice. (excuse my bay arean lang)
4. Guys. Tight pants. Eh.
5. Trams get JAMPACKED.
6. Coffees here are delicious!
7. Bars are cafes/lunch stops. Though you can get alcohol and there is a bar bench.
