          A flounder like fish called rodaballo - a flat round disk on the plate with slivers of toasted garlic and not much else. Blend that with spaghetti in a rich mushroom sauce which Micky ordered and for some reason the combo ...

          ... clue to this being a possible big mistake was that the hairdresser did not speak English so out we pulled goggle translate.

The fair is in the lower part of town but we find it ...

          So we wandered through and "oohed" and "ahhhed" at everything, and were quite fascinated with an exhibition there by a guy called Richard Serra, who I seem to recall I cast aspersions upon a while back.
