An interesting side note--we've mentioned before the differences we see in Italy, and the purchasing of a prescription was no different. When you buy things here, they tend to wrap them very nicely for you, from pastries, to kitchen items, to even prescriptions meds apparently.
Hopefully the beautiful drawings brought many smiles, in the face of the many new challenges the cast presented.
