The attraction is the prices I think, for 8Euro, you get a bottle of wine ...
... this evening, the traffic is dreadful, we arrive, just in time.
By the time Kathleen emerges from church, it is dark of course, and, the church is in a one-way system, so, we cannot just retrace our steps.
A couple of wrong turns, into cul-de-sacs, but, we make it back in one piece.
