Hey, Vegan Travellers!
I am writing to you today from what I think might be a dream. I am in Italy. I have always wanted to be in Italy. I am almost not in Italy anymore. I will soon be somewhere else. But for right now, and for the next few days, I am in Italy!
Depending upon where you live, you may well sympathize with the struggle and trouble I have had finding vegan Italian food. Usually, if a group of my friends and I are going out I know that I’ll be doomed to eating a plate of lettuce if they decide to go Italian. Everything has egg or mince or fish or cheese. You just can’t escape the nasty stuff. And if you do manage to escape it, your dish ends up being half-dissected, too expensive for what it is, and boring. I thought that Italy was going to be a bit like that for Ross and I. I knew that there were vegan restaurants, aye, but those are usually more expensive. I thought that outside of eating at vegan places we would have no options and have to subsist on rice and beans once again (been a while since I brought that one up. It’s really not that bad! Use spices!). I was very very wrong.
Anyway, I had been taking about how much I was looking forward to vegan Italian food since we were in Peru almost four months ago. It did not disappoint. I did say I was going to talk about some of the other things that are great about Italy, though, so I guess I’ve got to move on now.
