    Of course I like it.......I grew up playing soccer every single day and Juve has been my team since ever. However, now I that I live in the US it's a bit hard for me to keep up with all the matches played over there

    So was it some kind of anglo-saxon mass orgy initiation that had you conceived? Sounds like you belong to some secret society care to spill?!

    I've visited NC for white water rafting long long ago (some place with an Indian name). Lived in NY quite a bit.
    Nice places.

    That's the bitter reality...

    My heart is 50% in Italy and 50% in South Beach, Miami.

    Once I'll retire, I gotta make a decision where to spend the rest of my life. Just another 20 years :shock:

    Hey, that's great!

    I hope you had the opportunity to learn the language and get to know the country a little.
    I know of some soldiers stationed in Heidelberg who pretty much live in a 'bubble'. They have their Army homes, their own shops where they can buy all the American stuff they know from home etc. and don't really get in touch with the outside world.

    I find that a little sad. When I was in the United States I wanted to get the whole experience of living in another country - like speaking English all day, eating American food, watching American sports, celebrating American holidays and so on :)
