... the foot of the Italian mainland clearly, amazing. After a lovely lunch, we took the cable car back down to the coast and a taxi home, as it was siesta time, so no bus for a couple of hours. We rested up for tea, which as usual was terrific, especially a mussel and clam dish in a seafood broth which was to die for! We go our separate ways tomorrow, the Mossops to Positano, and us to Venice, both of us flying out within 10 minutes of each other. Until ...
