Baby Boy is crying about the bigger kids taking over the attractions at the park in Ischia and shoving him out in the photo above. But Italians are apparently just as blue nowadays, at least according to the United Nation’s most recent World Happiness Report. The Boot had a poor showing, which is mostly attributed to the economic crisis gripping Europe. Recently, I offered a firsthand look at the crisis, based on the last five months I’ve spent living in Ischia, which attempts to illustrate the sadness that the UN is reporting. You can read my story, “Italy is Blue,” on the ItaliansRus Web site. Give it a chance. There’s a surprise ending that offers a little hope to the Motherland. Oh and big kids, next time I won’t hold back Baby Boy. Let’s just say he won’t be the one crying. Capeesh?
