Some utter bastard at some point somehow skimmed my EFTPOS card details and PIN when I used it. Thus, a few days before my recent trip (which I shall soon write about, in small bite-sized pieces) I had to cancel my card and convert the euros I had to the local currency and live off that and Visa in a country that's not the biggest on credit cards. It's just lucky I never leave much in that account. It's also lucky they made a withdrawal in a city I've never been to so I noticed. Arseholes.

Anyways, counting the days it seems I'm over half way through this trip now. I'll soon start putting some thought into some kind of do for my return.

Italy *does* have a bit of a reputation as being hopelessly, incorrigibly corrupt. Is this something you notice as a tour... medium-term visitor there?

They are indeed permanently dodgy, and occasionally stray into corrupt territory. To give to a measure, they have 2 entirely independent police forces with the exact same jurisdiction (except one is military police in a time of war) and part of their mandate is to investigate each other.
