I went to the consulate on friday to hand in the papers i got from the comune's of my great grandparents. Alas I need the original certificate from my Uncle Lorenzo who lives in London. I was kind of upset but I know if I ask him he will send them to me. All they need to finalize my citizenship is to bring the originals into the consulate they make a copy of them and then i get them back to sendback to my zio.

I am still planning on leaving for italia in january despite this issue. I just can't wait because i am getting older....and i feel this is my time to go over. As I was telling a friend before, I see signs everywhere. People at work that are wearing Italia jackets. A girl walking down the hall with an Italia bag. It comes out of nowhere. I am not even thinking about it and there it is , ITALY STARING AT ME IN THE FACE.

Fabulous isn't it??? Very Happy

Indeed it is fabulous.....what better thing to have 'satring you in the face' if not Italia. Yahoo

But it doesn't matter what age you are when you come here. Getting older makes no difference at all.....I came over the first time in my early 20's, stayed for almost 10 years, then came back again at 62 to settle down finally and stay for the rest of my life!

Age very often isn't a physical state, but much more a mental state of mind. You're either mentally attuned to what you desire or it's likely to not be successful. You Katerina - I think are attuned!

I am inspired Carole. I am 46 and wonder often if I'm not getting to old to make such a drastic change in my life.
The spirit is willing but the bank account is weak. I only hope that the spirit is still strong when the financial issues are met.

Brava Katerina - January can't come soon enough.

Plenty of room at my place sweetie hug - but it IS a bit 'out of the way' as far as entertainment for 'the younger crowd'!!!!
(N.B. - The younger crowd for me means anyone under 60 hysteric !!!!!)
