Italians have mastered the finger wag…I only ever see the finger wag when I ask someone “parla l’inglese”…I get the wag (and a “no!”) like I’ve just brought a beer and a Marilyn Manson shirt into church or something…Like shame on me for not speaking Italian. I don’t think I’ve noticed this reaction anywhere else.
The Vespa is fixed!!! Guy drained the gas (cuz he thought the oil mixture was wrong), but after that didn’t fix he took apart the carburetor and cleaned everything. He charged me 35€ for about an hours work (and 2 test drives)…Which I think is really good. Nice guy and done amazing Vespa work…so there’s my recommendation for the Vespa shop in Marina di Carrara.
