My husband, Carl and I were traveling in Italy and finally arrived in Rome! Seeing the Colosseum, aka, The Flavian Amphitheatre, was something on my bucket list! The structure was amazing and the photos I took still bring me wonderful memories and ongoing interest in Roman History. However, as we were leaving the Colosseum, an elderly Italian lady approached Carl and began speaking to him in Italian and gesticulating wildly. My husband looks Italian and I realized she was asking him questions to which he was unable to respond. Carl threw up his hands and tried to convey he did not speak her language. The elderly lady, dressed in all black and wearing sensible matching black shoes began hitting my husband on his head with her large black bag! We assumed she thought he did speak Italian and was merely being, “fresh.” And to think we were worried about pickpockets!!
