Just want to say I can't believe what's gone on in this thread.

Katia,
you should go over to <a href='http://www.jetsetting.net'>jetsetting.net

You should get an answer over there.

Regards, Joseph

So how much is a room at the Ville d'Este?
By the way, I'd never pay $165 for a transfer as I'm not rich, but so what if she wants to. It will certainly be the easiest way to go.

One question. Why, if she used impeccable English, did you assume she was and American? That would have been my last guess, as most Americans do not. If the English was error free then chances are she is British. If the note would have been full of y'alls and you knows then, yes, for sure an American.

Hold on Prof Jones.

British? Impeccable English? Perhaps the Queens English. I really have to laugh.

You had to assume she was American. If she was British she would have been staying at the 1 star hostel down the road and hitching her way from Milan airport.

She's obviously not from the midwest since her message is not loaded with y'alls.

My bet is she's from Manhattan.

Why don't the friends with the rental car pick you up?
I think it's reasonable to assume most people on this board are Americans. Why?
1) Fodor's is an American company.
2) This is an American website.
3) Also, she did quote the taxi fare in dollars in her original post. Why not post the rate in pounds? Maybe she assumed most people on this site are Americans.

I don't know what all the fuss is about, considering my holiday ended five months ago. But to set things straight, for the record, I am an American who has been living in London for the last 3 years. I never thought having impeccable grammar was such a crime. By the way, for anyone who's interested, we did take a taxi (sent by the hotel) from Linate airport to the Villa d'Este and enjoyed every minute of it. The rest of the trip was wonderful as well. Thank you all for your input.

Has Katia changed her nationality since June, when she said she was British, or are there one or more Katia impersonators afoot?

Message: Holly, why do you automatically assume that we are American and cannot speak Italian? We are just trying to find out what the fair rate for a taxi trip from Milan to Como would be. We could be Italians from the south of Italy who are not familiar with the Lake Como region. Why do Americnas always assume that everyone else is American? We happen to be British and do speak Italian. You'll find that Europeans often speak more than one language. And yes, we are staying at the Villa d'Este.

It is a bit irritating how it is assumed that everyone on this forum is from the US. BTW, the 'www' on top of your screen stands for the 'World Wide Web'.

Speaking of good english, quoting from My Fair Lady, I thounght 'in Amercia they haven't spoken it for years....'
