la bella figura

The Italians put photographs of the dead on graves.
The Italians sleep through the warm hours after lunch. 
They tile their floors. 
They are not in a hurry. 
They are not always punctual. 
The Italians do not eat while walking. Eating is done sitting down. 
(Usually while watching TV.) 
The Italians touch you when they are talking, and this is also information.

Love it. Ooh, that touching! Yes!

I was in a cemetery yesterday evening, chased away by a scary thunderstorm. There was a photograph on one of the recent headstones.
