... a meat or fish main, pudding if you can stand it and appetisers too are an option. I just went for starter and main as the prices are a bit eye watering and I'm still ravishing the breakfast buffet (no new cakes to report today). Veg sides are available but you hardly ever see them ordered and there are not loads of veg on the plate. The French are the same, I'd like to know when they eat their greens to avoid ...

... realized that the drivers here respect cyclists and don't treat them like they don't belong on the road, which unfortunately happens at home. Here in Ferrara there are cyclists everywhere, and lots of bike lanes. It is Italy's city of bicycles. It was about 5:30 when we arrived at our hotel, so we had some time to explore the area. There is a castle with a moat just two blocks from our hotel! It is called Castello Estense. This city still has much of the original wall around ...
