In Italy, one of the signs that you are ‘getting too close’ or ‘are stepping on toes’ is the old anonymous letter with a bullet in it. Stories of such happenings, whilst not common, do crop up in the news here from time to time.
So far, this blogger, who ‘translates’ Italian news into English, has not attracted unwanted attention, and, I’m pleased to say, no bullets have been mailed to me in the form of a dire warning as to the consequences of continuing my actions.
Yes, I guess writing this makes me a little paranoid, but things such as this do happen here, and what I write about may not be appreciated in some circles, possibly. However, the fact that I’m writing about this means that the thought has crossed my mind. I examined some related issues in an post entitled ‘The Dangerous Heart of Italy‘ a while back.
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
Don’t worry though, nothing has happened to make me worried!
If, though, you find that Blog from Italy suddenly stops, or it looks as though little old me is not behind things, well, you may have an idea as to what has happened!
Just call me ‘danger blogger’, not.
