    ... enjoying the scenery even more for it. And that suits our cute little Kombi van, with its heavy steering, tiny motor, four speed gears, and no fan or aircon. We are also growing accustomed to drawing attention from the locals, who stop to point at, talk about, smile at and wave to, the cute little cream-coloured Kombi as we pass through their towns.

    ... that was just leaving. On the way over we met a young lady and her dad who are Americans living in Italy. He is a consultant with an U.S. Army base. Julia attends an Italian school.
