Today he recieved his carta di soggiorno which gives him permission to live in Italy for 5 years without any other intereference from the Italian Bureaucracy or any other lower life forms. May all future obstacles be banished from our lives.
I am so happy that he is now here permently with me. I can't tell you. We had the nicest celebration lunch at a little restaurant in the hills called Girasoli di Sant'Andrea. He had a wonderful steak and I had the best chicken dish I have had in Umbria.
Making it through the Italian bureaucracy is no small task. I am so proud of the two of us. We have hung tough together. Hurray for us!
