What I'll miss about my Italian life

Time is ticking away very quickly and I'm starting to get nostalgic about the things I'll miss. One of the things that I've been trying to take advantage of in the blustery weather we've been having is my fireplace. It isn't in the usual place. Here in Italy the fireplaces tend to be in the kitchen. I'll miss cooking my Tuscan beans overnight in the terracotta pot on the hot embers.

I've never seen any houses in the city with fireplaces here. How nice! I'd love to have a fireplace too.

You caught me! I live a little more in the countryside than the city. It has really been such a luxury -especially when it comes to roasting chestnuts.
