I like to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee, read the newspaper, or maybe just listen to the birds in the morning. I've been known to sit outside on the patio with a neighbor and talk for hours. (Isn't that right K.H.?) :0
Coffee is a big deal and Italy certainly has good coffee (very strong coffee in my opinion). However everyone drinks it like they're throwing back a shot of whiskey and then they light up their fifteenth cigarette of the morning and off they go.
