Only in Italy

The morning after  my ‘First post therapy gig’ fiasco the main/only topic of conversation in the bar was the chaos created by the heavy snowfall. Italy and the rest of Europe had ground to a halt. On the Firenze-Bologna autostrada there were people stuck in their trucks and cars for up to 17 hours. However one truck driver who was carrying Prosecco and Panettone, a very traditional Xmas combination; sparkling wine and cake. He decided that he needed to eat and drink and shared his cargo with others stuck in the same snowbound situation!

I think us Brits would have starved to death, whereas this enterprising Italian simply made the best of the situation. Excellent!
