As before he had a rest while Jane processed her photos before we set off to find Christopher Columbus’s house, which, of course was closed.

We hopped on another bus at random & this went east along the coast. A lady tapped us on the shoulder & told us to get off at ...

... distinctly basiley, and the pasta shape was a twisted little noodle, also a staple of the region. The flavors of garlic, pecorino and Parmesan cheeses and pinenuts shone through with enthusiasm, and we smiled giddily the entire time we ate it. The Panzoti was a ravioli-like pasta, and it too was delicious. D had heard of this almond sauce before, and was insistent on getting it...I guess it was a nutty kind of night... (Groan...) the richness of the nuts really came ...
