Cena Thailandese at the L’Osteria in Piazza Angelio this evening. A completely full restaurant sitting down to eat a meal with chopsticks and washed down with Thai beer.
There was even music from Thailand radio beaming in from the internet to add to the experience. You had to work hard to imagine you were actually in the heart of Tuscany. But then if you look closer, you notice the bottles of red Tuscan wine on the checkered tableclothes and a menu that includes risotto, spaghetti and chicken – the Italian taste is not that far way after all.

The Kingdom of Thailand lies in Southeast Asia, with Laos and Cambodia to its east, the Gulf of Thailand and Malaysia to its south, and the Andaman Sea and Myanmar to its west. The country’s official name was Siam (Thai: à¸ªà¸¢à¸²à¸¡; IPA: [saËˆjaËm], RTGS: Sayam) until 24 June 1939.  It was again called Siam between 1945 and May 11, 1949, when it was once again changed by official proclamation. The word Thai (à¹„à¸—à¸¢) means “freedom” in the Thai language and is also the name of the majority ethnic group. source
