One example of the myriad of upsides to being here overseas. Tonight, we had an impromptu dinner at the landlords' house and while enjoying some delicious spinach/pasta/mushroom foodstuff, the t.v. popped up with an image much like this... Il Nuovo Papa, which in Italian roughly translates to "Fourth Quarter Of The Super Bowl". Not sure I've ever seen them this excited... :).
Of course, they're really rooting for an Italian Pope :)
