LOL (Laughing Out Loud)... I guess the old links between Italy & China are still strong, eh? Marco Polo's ghost must be very happy... BTW it's not a coincidence that quite a number of Little Italys & Chinatowns in American big cities are close by each other... I have met some Italian-speakin Chinese & one Cantonese-speaking Milanese. zHANg
