You're right - it's richer by far than his wildest dreams. Our
great-grandparents mostly lived in unimaginable (for us) poverty and they
had children like rabbits, so lack of funds is not an explanation.

My apologies, I was just teasing. Americans may excel in personal hygiene,
but then again most of us weigh 300 lbs. and drink very bad beer, so it's
not all good.

I do. Also some of the worst. But on the whole, we got some of everything,
so whatever it is that you want, you just have to look for it. Some things
you have to look for harder than others, but if you look hard enough, you'll
find almost every conceivable thing. Espresso bars with soccer posters and
cornetto pastries that could be in some small town in Calabria, gas stations
that serve instant vanilla hazelnut "cappuccino" made from powder, and
everything in between. I just had dinner in an "Italian" restaurant that is
owned by Albanians and has an Ecuadorian chef (I'm not making this up) and
the cloudlike gnocchi were as good as any in Rome. But I can also buy frozen
"pizza" at the supermarket that tastes like cardboard and even the cheese is
not really cheese.
