Yes Americans/Canadians live a certain lifestyle that we are use to but damn I couldn't handle living in these substandard conditions, killing my self a work (southern Italians are very lazy), deal with a government that is "connected" and pockets soo much of the citizens money, laws are a joke, towns are dirty, and male drivers think they own the road and their way of thinking is the only right way. But its beautiful to visit this great country and then return to a civilized country. Oh and just incase your wondering, I have lived here for 12 years and my wife is Italian so yes I can say these things!!!
