I hope you and the kids are well, and everyone back home is as well. The journey to America was how can you say? Non buono ma niente male(not good but not bad). It was so bumpy and swaying all the time, I couldn’t sleep for one bit. But at least I had Rodolpho with me, you know how he just cheers everyone up and makes everyone laugh.

The people we are staying with are called Eddie, Beatrice and Catherine. Eddie is Beatrice’s husband and to be honest he is a bit of a controlli il capriccio (control freak) also I think he does not take a liking in Rodolpho, I don’t know why though, he just seems to despise him all the time. Beatrice on the other had is always the one who stops any real arguments from happening. She is smart our cousin. Real smart. And then there is Catherine, who is not really as smart as Beatrice, and she also has this weird connection with Eddie, but it is probably an American thing. She...
