Italian Speakers Everywhere
Without realizing it, I have been surrounded all along by Italian speakers.
I am starting to think that my building is filled with people who surreptitiously speak Italian. I had no idea how many of our neighbors were fluent in it. Every week I find a new one.
Today I learned that one of our neighbors on our floor speaks both Spanish and Italian. So I spoke to her in Italian on an elevator ride down to the lobby.
She was friendly. Maybe I’ll invite her over for tea.
