Can you guys please stop speaking Chinese?
The chunky girl in the video seems to imply that Asians still organize themselves into hordes.
If there are any Asians in this thread (and I think that there are, based on my observations), perhaps one of you can confirm if this is true or still confined to Mongolians.
Hmmm. Hindu-Arabic numerals.
I actually sent you an e-mail earlier today - I'm on my way out next week. Will be in town Fri 22 - Tues 26.
Let's get caught up my man.
why not just PM the resident ambassador to Xilinhot
Arabs just merely copied the Indian numeral system, just like many more things.
Continuation, Naples, Day 1
We picked a rather bad week to be in Italy. From Rome to Naples, the weather was terrible, characterised by light drizzle through out the day punctuated with the occasional down pour. Suffice to say, walking around the small streets of Naples was not an enjoyable experience under these circumstances. It also explains the lack of any street photography during our visit.
Anyway, our next stop was at the atelier of a respected Neapolitan tailor, who unlike his counter parts shuns publicity. This particular tailor will remain nameless. However, some readers may be able to deduce who he is either by being an existing customer (I know who you are ), knowledge of his particular cut, or through the background of the photos posted below. By all means, speculate all you want but enquiries to the identity will go unanswered. Why keep his identity a secret? It's simple really. I respect his business and his customer base. They do extremely well and are already having some capacity issues. And this is by no means a shill for his business, hence there is no need to highlight who he is. We may debate this issue but I would retort by saying that only a fool will argue with the fiercely decided.
With that out of the way, we found that our tailor has been hard at work.
Here is an example of what he can do with the latest London Lounge shetland.

Next, Florence, Day 2...
Nice pics Gaz. Pity about the weather but on the other hand count yourself lucky you are not there at the moment. My tie maker, also in Naples tells me it's up around 40 degrees at the moment!
I am also burning under the tuscan sun...
Guys, I love your report - I have been to Napoli at the same and I know the rainy situation you are talking of. I hope you made a stop at Talarico to get a nice umbrella?
Nice pics. I think I can guess the identity of the MBT by the store.
All the stuff looks very nice, but the notion of a three-piece fresco does baffle me.
Separate names with a comma.
