Many parts of Italy are still behind, but things are moving here and recycling has become mandatory in most cities. I think the first real recycling bins I saw quite a few years ago were the ones for old batteries and those for out-of-date medicines. The bins for the medicine are obviously found outside of pharmacies (and not only), but the containers for batteries aren’t always easy to find. Until one was placed permanently near home, I usually had a little plastic bag of old batteries in my purse, always ready to dispose of them properly. Unfortunately, quite often I forgot I had a bag of batteries with me.

You find yourself in a totally new environment with a mind boggling ‘to do’ list – things that back in your homeland wouldn’t even cross your mind.

You then realize you have become an expat and pose yourself the question: what happened to the simple job search? Why can’t I just email a simple CV? Why are things different in this country?
