We started the day with a major bummer: Bradley left for home bright and early, which makes me really sad. I miss him already and I'm jealous that he gets to see our pooch and smoosh his little Louie face. There are a ton of dogs in Europe, by the way, and people bring them everywhere with them.

Off we were again..wandering around town to find a place to eat. We found another ok resturante (where Carl managed again to spill on himself), but then managed to get to one of the geloto places in our book ( a all organic one)...sadly it wasn't that great. But the next one 10 minutes later ...
