A few years ago a friend of mine translated the following conversation he had just overheard on the beach. An Italian woman was explaining to her husband and his friend that, contrary to popular belief, the best way to get an all over tan was to stay in one position, as that way your sides, as well as the top of your body, gets brown. “And now you know what my wife spends her time thinking about”, the Italian woman’s husband said to his male friend.
But I think she may be right so I am passing this little gem on. It also negates the need to move your towel, so it is constantly facing the sun, as it crosses the sky during the day.
