After months of cutting through Italian Red Tape (with dull scissors, no doubt,) Il Cedro Bed and Breakfast is set to open its doors, ahem, “officially” that is, this FRIDAY!
Who knew the paperwork would take FIVE months to process? I know, I know, some of you expats living in Italy coulda guessed, but really now…FIVE MONTHS?!?
Even though we are still holding out for that official paper to post on our wall, Peppe and I think we’ve learned a whole bunch about running a B&B. For one thing, we know some decisions are harder to make than others, and we’ve learned that some parts of the job just-never-end!
Thanks to my B&B buddies, from Scotland back to Italy (Really Rome, Chaplin, and Little Italy) I’ve been given a heads up on expectations and boundaries.
“Set a time limit for check-ins”
“Work really hard on your website”
“It will take time…”
Kataroma added more about this in one of her posts last week. Interesting, no?
Sooo….here we go. After years of planning, constructing, remodelling, decorating, and, (he he) waiting…We’re almost there, baby.
