hi Diana
how nice to hear from you!
I was an exchange student in Wisconsin, and went back to the US for summer jobs later on.
I'm from La Spezia, moved here for college and then settled here.
I speak English with my little one, but only when it's just me and her, so far.
Where do you live in Parma? We may meet at the Biblioteca Internazionale Ilaria Alpi, have you ever been there?

Interesting story!
I moved to Parma 6 years ago from Milan. My father is Italian and my mom American (from California, more precisely). I have two lovely boys aged 4 1/2 & 18 months and I'm trying to teach them English. The problem is they don't get any stimulus apart from me as they don't have, for instance, any English speaking friends to play with. I myself would love to have some new internationale open-minded friend! For this reason I would like to found an English speaking moms club/kids clubs. This could be a good starting point, although I think it would be best if we could meet a few mother-tongue moms/kids coming from abroad or we would probably end speaking Italian to each other!
I've heard about the International library, always wanted to go but never really made it, so it would be great to meet there! Where is it exactly? What day & time do you suggest? For me any time is ok (consider that I pick up my eldest son from preschool at 4pm) , it would be better to meet next week (I'll be in Milan for a long week-end), any day except on Wednesday. Sounds good?

See you soon then!
Diana

Hi Diana,
let's meet on tuesday, nov 13, at 4.30, at the library (it's at the end of via cavour: [bibliotecaalpi.it/index.php/it/dove-siamo). There's a playroom with children books in foreign languages inside. I might be a little late, depending on the time my daughter wakes up from the afternoon nap. Can you send me a private message so we can exchange our phone numbers? It seems I'm not allowed...

Hi Micaela, it sounds good!
I've just tried to send you a PM but it says you are not allowed to receive them. I think you need at least 5 posts to be enabled and apparently you only have 3 ... what a nuisance! I suggest you to send me 2 more posts and then try again with a PM!
Hopefully we can make it
D.

Default So, Parma?

As you might gather from my handle I had hoped to retire in Roma but it just seems unaffordable. After U.S. taxes and U.S. healthcare (I would probably return for anything major) I will probably have around 1500E/month to play around with. Lacking Roma, Parma seems just about ideal; reputedly good food, interesting on its own, and central to many other cities. Checking out immobiliare{dot}it it seems like there are a lot of affordable (<700E/mo) furnished apartments in the central district (getting too old to drive, hope to have no car). So, here's the questions:
1) Is this site a reliable tool?
2) Should a single increasingly elderly American live in the central district?
3) I really really really don't want to have to screw around getting utilities in my name; how do I ask for "utilities included"? Willing to pay extra for the convenience. I just want to be handed a key to a "turn key" livable space.

Default Alternatively ...

Alternatively, if anyone would be interested in a house swap for a season let me know. I live in a ground floor condo (owned apartment) 6 miles (10 km) from the Gulf of Mexico beaches and am the nearest unit to the tennis courts and swimming pool. I have to be over 55 to live here; not sure about renters.
