So Italians have a lot in common with us new Jerseyans. First off, lets talk traffic. Traffic is Rome is horrible. Just like in Jersey, Italians don't believe in speed limits. Also there is always traffic, and rush hour is insane.
Another similarity, Italy is very regional, and Italians make fun of the people who live in other parts of Italy. My Italian teacher is always talking trash on those "people from Milan". Reminds me of how we talk about North Jersey.
I thought of more similarities earlier, but I can't remember anymore. But the point is, we are more similar than we thought.
