about this country - There's one thing very extraordinary for me and sad too.  The fact that in Italy I used to be just one of them and feel at home.  But now because of the uniform I'm for them just another sucker, another tourist easy to fool and belonging to a strange superior class, the sahab, just like in India, they are just "natives". I guess that's true only for Southern Italy - The situation of the people is really bad, morale, food etc. I'm disgusted, I want only to be back to you and hold you near and everytime I'll get restless and want to go around looking for changes put me under my nose the letters I wrote you and this one especially which is a confused, short tired letter just to tell you that I love you and only you
