The Very Special People


Tuesday, September 13, 2011


Few days back I saw the Hollywood movie- "Eat, Love, Pray" starring Julia Roberts. Though, the movie was average but it was really good in bits-n-pieces. One of the part that I really liked was when Julia Roberts goes to Italy. Italy is truly a mesmerizing place and it certainly in my wishlist, I sure want to visit it sometime soon.

One of the interesting thing shown in the movie was how they speak in Italy, using the various gestures. I really like it :). I thought, I will share with you the clip from the movie, so here you go:

I surfed through the internet and found that Italian hand gestures are so very much important part of communication. Though, I've to admit that after seeing these videos I do feel I should have born in Italy :)

I love Italy and I love everything about it- food, people, places and the hand gestures. What a place !!

I didn't like the book and I also was not a big fan of the movie. But I do agree, the book made me want to travel! It is my dream to visit Italy (among a few other countries) one day! Awesome post. :)

I went to Rome, Italy in 2008 for my honeymoon and fell in love with the culture. Italy is an amazing place and I had never felt more comfortable in a place in my entire life. The language is one of romance and Eat, Pray, Love captured the Italian life style beautifully. I wish to return one day. My marriage may not have lasted... but my love of that beautiful, amazing culture has engraved itself deep within my soul.
