移民的一个副作用是文化把他们自己的习惯带到世界的另一个地方,这大大丰富了他们来到的新地方!Especially when it comes to food!!

作为一个例子,二战后,many people places like Greece andItalywere just sick of the baggage that two European wars across a few decades had left,so many of them,,including my own family,decided that enough was enough and left to go to the other side of the world,不知道他们会等待什么,and without knowing the language!!

我认为这是一个相当大胆的举动,and whilst you try to assimilate into the new place,it's inevitable that you're going to keep some old habits,如Italian Culturethat I grew up with.

作为一个例子,there are truckloads of意大利传统在那里,他们存在的原因是因为他们至少有一个真理的元素!我已经回到意大利过去为了重新发现我的根,并且可以确认有很多刻板印象是真实的,但无论如何,I had a great time hanging out with my *distant* relatives and seeing what it was all 亚博app官方下载about.

I'm sure that expats who住在意大利也会感谢“甜蜜生活”,or the sweet life.
