    • Carmen: This is no time for shopping, Contessa. ACME's on to us. Hide out in Asmara. It's the capital of an African country on the Red Sea.
      Contessa: Asmara? Oh, the name sounds almost Italian, but Italy's not on the Red Sea.
      Carmen: Why, Contessa! Using your head for something besides big hats? Yes, Asmara's in a country that was occupied by Italy for a long time, and the Italian influence is still strong.
      Contessa: Oh, I can taste the cappuccino already!
      Carmen: And the pizza and the pasta. You'll also find elegant villas, palaces, and charming cafes. Italy left this country over 50 years ago, but there's still a small Italian community living in Asmara.
      Contessa: Ah, Italian style. It never goes out of fashion.
