    non sense post...just wanted to share a couple of pics in this windy sunny day here middle Italy, Lanciano (region of Abruzzo)
    abruzzo7.

    this is what I can see right now from the west (mountains) and east side (sea) of my house.
    I love this city,full of history (more ancient than Rome, we also have the oldest recorded Miracle of the Eucharist in the history of the Church if you're into religion, wich I'm not) perfectly placed in the middle of everything...

    you can see the sea on the horizon

    well...to be honest, there's plenty of things I would like to see here...
    a better class of politicians
    more honesty
    more attention to the HUGE artistic patrimony we have and that we always forget
    more job opportunities for the young people...
    I can go on for days...

    but above all...




    more affordable basses and amps :D:D:D

    One would expect that at least the MarkBass stuff would be affordable there.

    a little bit, but not as you would expect...
    I'm lucky enough to live at 40km (25 miles) from the factory,
    I've been personally there to have my Little Mark repaired (damaged volume pot after a fall) and they are SUPER nice people.
    They repaired it in a couple of hours and charged me NOTHING despite my head (the first yellow one) was obviously no more under warranty.

    Long life to Markbass. :bassist::hyper:

    My father is from Collelongo, which is in your area. It's my absolute dream to visit there one day.

    True, that. You have to go to 1) Belgium or 2) Germany if you want the best beer. You go to Italy for the food and women :bassist:

    Do it, you'll be amazed ;)
    and if ever, of course, let me know ;)

    Ps: you would be surprised by how many extremely good italian beers we have,
    it's just that we have a slightly different taste for beer,
    personally, I've been in Austria for a gig and i've tasted the best beer EVER.
    I've tasted it so extensively I can't remember the name :smug:
