I always thought I could live just about anywhere in the US: Big city or small town, costal or highlands, east or west, north or south. Perhaps as I get older I get more set in my ways but I have learned I am more particular about where I could live than I thought.
Northern Virginia is not for us!
Valerie has returned to Lucanella and I will soon follow. We plan to be there until the week before Christmas, hopefully longer.
Our Permesso di Soggiorno (PdiS) will be due for renewal in November, our fourth time to renew them. Our experience has been that it is much easier to renew our PdiS than it would be to get a new Visa to start the process all over again if we allowed the PdiS to lapse.
We know we do not want to be in Northern Virginia and are pursuing work opportunities in Italy. If they do not work out then when we return to the US in December we will again start the process to find employment here in America. I do not know where that will be but I have some good ideas as to where it won’t be.
