This is going to be a short one, because I'm crazy busy at the moment, but I have a stock of stories for later.
Once while I was walking down the street in Milan, a vaguely creepy (not Italian) man was walking in the other direction was staring at me. Normal, for Italy, used to it. But then, when our paths crossed, he said, "Ma mangi solo la crema?" (But do you only eat cream?)
I still have no idea what that means.
