An Italian Visitor's Impressions

"Ma c'e' sempre cosi' caldo qui?" ("Is it always so hot here?")

Alexander and Eliot's cousin Luca has come back with us from Verona to spend a couple of weeks here in Singapore. These are some of his first impressions:

After just one hour, Luca: "Is it always so hot here?"

After a couple of hours: "It feels like the jungle."

Later that day: "I have heard a lot about bacon. Do you have bacon here?"

After the bacon: "Was that dinner or just a snack?"

That night: "This rice doesn't taste like risotto. Oh, and I forgot to tell you I don't like Chinese food."

Later that night: "This building has 30 floors? I thought my building was high and it's three stories."

Next morning: "Can we have more bacon?!"
