I will say: “I come from the North Pole” for shock value.

Lost to a world in which I crave no part,
I sit alone and listen to my heart,
Pleased with my little corner of the earth,
Glad that I came--not sorry to depart

Man, if you have no strong reason to prefer to go to Italy, go to another country. It's probably the country in the EU with the most corrupt politicians. Plus, when the debt crisis explodes, Italy will tubmle down.
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

Lower Mainland; Greater Vancouver Area, British Columbia, Canada eh. Home of Brian Rue, Mountains, the desolate cold, and just a hop skip and a jump to the Birken Forest Monastery out in Kamloops (where I've never been).
