Interesting fact about me
While in Thailand, I voluntarily went in cages with unchained Tigers.
I love to cook! I love to dance … I enjoy international films (particularly Italian films)… I enjoy knitting and crocheting… I recently started running (yes, outdoor running even in the bitter Chicago winter weather) … I enjoy traveling … I would love to be able to speak EVERY language in the world … even the ones with the "clicks". :) ... I like learning how to create things (ANYthing) from scratch. … When I’m around other Italians (from Italy) I become more animated & exaggerated. (more Neapolitan!) … I don't have a favorite color … I've grown my own micro greens … And, I like to take cooking classes (in Chicago or overseas) ...
