Love it!

Post by ghiro on Fri May 02, 2014 12:18 pm

We're having some work done at Casa Ghiro and are waiting for the cotto tiles to arrive.

Our wonderful geometra is learning English so, as part of his education, he sends me emails in both Italian and English.  This is not infrequently a source of great amusement to me.   Very Happy 

Todays gem:
Italian: 'Questa mattina arriva il cotto da Firenze'.
English: 'This morning comes cooked to Florence'!

How good is that?!!  Smile  Smile
