Io amo la lingua italiana

There is something about the cadence and flow of the Italian language - the "feel" of the words on my tongue when I speak, the musicality of the words that I hear, the rrrrrrolling of the rrrrs that is so much fun - that pleases my heart and soul and vocal cords...

For loving or for fighting, Italian is so very much sweeter than that supposedly "most romantic" language, French.

Reminds of "Eat, Pray, Love"... that's how the author feels too. Talk in Italian the next time we speak! :)

As someone who speaks both Italian and French, I couldn't agree with you more. What a language, what a country!

'ema: So you're using my nickname for you officially? :) I'll try and talk Italian, sure!

Kamini: Wow! Do you speak both languages fluently? I used to be reasonable in German. Must try my Italian on you :)
