Italy a Third Second-World Country?

Dale Fox at Rome's Coliseum

In another example of people just checking out of the day-to-day grind and traveling around the world and blogging as they go, is a site written by Dale and MeiMei Fox, "bomad" standing for bourgeois nomad.

In a recent post, these self-styled travel critics have decided that Italy is just a step up from a third-world country for various reasons including special prices for tourists, the post office's refusal to deliver post cards, metered local phone calls, cover charges at restaurants and more. Frankly, most of their complaints seem to be universal features of travel in Europe in general. I think they're being a bit harsh. (Then again, I lived for five years in Eastern Europe, so I'm not easily impressed with such minor inconveniences when it comes to travel. Go visit Tirana, Albania and then complain about Italy...)
