Yesterday was Canada Day. It wasn’t too exciting here in Italy. For the record I think people didn’t even notice. Or they didn’t care. Or some combination thereof. The people I did tell “Happy Canada Day” to usually replied “Happy Canada Day to you too.” (If they spoke English)So it wasn’t a total loss. But I didn’t even drink alot of beer, and I definitely didn’t have a small slice of a big cake shaped like a maple leaf. The best thing was the classical music concert on top of the Capitoline Hill, but that was just coincidence. I know because I’m looking at the flyer as I type.
Well, I guess Canada Day’s just not a big deal to the Italians. Now I know.
