Judith Works Spiffs Up Coins In The Fountain ~ Part Memoir, Part Travelogue

Pasta! Vino! Hill Towns! Coins in the Fountain will transport you
to Italy where you can find out what it's really like to live the expatriate
life. It's all here in the story of a couple who said "NO!" to middle
age boredom and made a dash from a small-town in Oregon to cosmopolitan Rome
when the author went to work for the United Nations.  A brush with the Italian medical system, an
auto accident with the military police, dealing with an excitable landlord and
helping pick grapes all became part of their daily adventures. And of course
there were many new friends like the countess with her butt-reducing machine
and the count who served as a model for statues of naked horsemen.
