“I have made everlasting friendships with intelligent, fun and caring women. I make sure not to miss the cultural events that they organize each month like visits to the American Embassy, inside peek of the Anglo American cemetery in Rome where poets such as Shelley, Keats and Goethe and are laid to rest among a tranquil and beautiful garden setting."
