When we travel abroad, we are always foreigners to the local inhabitants just as they are foreigners to us. The “foreigner’s” point of view can be very useful for seeing the world around us in a different and original way; particularly, when our writing threatens to fall into a rut of triteness or stereotyping. How can we talk about Rimini [resort on the Adriatic Riviera] beyond Fellini [the Italian director born there], the piadina [a local flatbread] and discotheques? Look for a foreigner who has moved to Rimini and get them to describe the city from their point of view. You will probably be pleasantly surprised by what they have to say.
