... so crowded the driver did not take any fares!He had more English than we had Italian, but we did learn that Italy had a referendum and will not have nuclear power!
The mosaics in the churches in Ravenna are certainly magnificent! The photos should speak for themselves.

Another lovely sunny day! We set out to see the remaining 3 places with early mosaics but were distracted on the way by a market in a piazza.

... the old dears. Signor is nigh on comatose beside me, clasping a bottle of Peroni Rossa to his chest as though it's his last (5.2% as noted and underlined in red in Signora's diary). The day has been very pleasant. I've enjoyed the walk along the well maintained paths, surrounded by long grass and trees. This must be one of the greenest cities on the planet. This is my second time around the perimeter of the city. The first, along the top of the ramparts was ...
