As I am away on a business trip, I have little time to write on my blog but much time to read other people’s writing. One of the blogs I like to read is that of a friend of mine from my Milanese life – Eric Sylvers. Eric is a very serious journalist with a passion for food, sports and hiking. I like his take on Italy in this blog post. If you are interested in Italian politics and more, check out his blog, Foodie in Italy.
