... and I had to nurse it home. It had been giving me trouble for 10 days or so and I thought it was my fault for letting the fuel get too low and therefore the dirty stuff at the bottom had upset it. It turned out to be some computerised part that needed to be reset. On Friday we went to Ventimiglia markets.

The next stop is Bellamo just a few KM's down the line and the Poms had moved to another carriage in shame. That leaves us and the all American young couple.

It only chimes on the hour and the half hour.” As I write this, the party is warming up downstairs. Someone has found a huge bass drum. The bells are chiming but – we have a lovely ...
