Fernando first sees Marlena across the Piazza San Marco and falls in love from afar. When he sees her again in a Venice café a year later, he knows it is fate. He knows little English; she, a divorced American chef traveling through Italy, speaks only food-based Italian. Marlena thought she was done with romantic love, incapable of intimacy. Yet within months of their first meeting, she has quit her job, sold her house in St. Louis, kissed her two grown sons good-bye, and moved to Venice to marry “the stranger,” as she calls Fernando. This deliciously satisfying memoir is filled with the foods and flavors of Italy and peppered with culinary observations and recipes. But the main course here is an enchanting true story about a woman who falls in love with both a man and a city, and finally finds the home she didn’t even know she was missing.

As you catch your first glimpse of the crystal-clear waters of Lake Garda with its endlessly long banks, you instantly begin envisioning sunset strolls through picturesque fishing villages and abandoning yourself to dolce far niente - the ineffable sweetness of doing nothing.

These are the sights and stories that leap to mind when one thinks of this region. But did you also know that the world's second-shortest river flows here? Or that the village of Limone did not get its name from its groves of lemon trees? Have you heard the true story of Juliet's famous balcony? Or the circumstances surrounding the 13th-century "Casa di Romeo" - the house in which the handsome young suitor could very well have lived? This guide will lead you to 111 special places rarely mentioned in conventional travel books, but which lend this history-laden idyll its sensual magic.

The dawn of the 21st Century presents a global environment characterized by regional instability, failed states, increased weapons proliferation, global terrorism, and unconventional threats to United States citizens, interests, and territories.

The Mexicans

A Personal Portrait of a People

Author: Patrick Oster

Publisher: Harper Collins

ISBN: 0061951870

Category: History

Page: 352

View: 6006

The Mexicans is a multifaceted portrait of the complex, increasingly turbulent neighbor to our south. It is the story of a country in crisis -- poverty, class tensions, political corruption -- as told through stories of individuals. From Augustín, an honest cop, we learn that many in the Mexican police force use torture as their number-one-crime-solving technique; from Julio Scherer Garcia, a leading newspaper editor, we learn how kidnapping and intimidating phone calls stifle people despite his meager income; we hear from a homosexual teacher wary of bigotry in a land of machismo; and many others. Moving from Mexico City discos to remote Indian towns, Patrick Oster tells of Mexicans whose lives reveal something vital about Mexico, and in doing so, helps to understand why many decide to risk their lives in order to have the opportunity to live in the United States.
