Life on a Gelato Diet

Everyday expeditions with an American in Bolzano

About the Book

Join American photographer Lee McIntyre as she takes a sabbatical from her high-tech career and sets off to master not only Italian, but also the ins and outs of the language of life in the South Tyrol. Lee's daily errands in Bolzano/Bozen, Italy regularly turn out to be anything-but-routine.

[Note: the content of the Kindle version sold on Amazon is the same as the Kindle (and other eBook) versions sold here on LeanPub]
