We felt we needed an easy day today, for reasons explained later, and had an fairly late breakfast before strolling out to see the remaining churches and artworks in Parma. Incidentally, the trattoria we had intended to return to last night was closed, so we tried another - the Trattoria Tribunale - which turned out to be not only more pleasant, but also cheaper!
Anyway, this morning we went to the church of St John the Baptist, ...
Well there they all are....on every street corner...in nearly every cafe...even in the clothes shops. Petit and dainty clothed in fancy coats or little pyjama suits, big and butch, long and lanky, large and hairy, dazzling with diamante, lush with leather. Yes...they are Parma's dogs.

It seems a fairly quiet town too, from what we saw on a Saturday night, but maybe we were just in the wrong places. Tomorrow is gallery day, first the National Gallery, and then the Stuard Collection of 270 (!!) paintings. You'llno doubt hear all about them from Joy ...
