Good Morning Vancouver
So we are near the boot of Italy tonight. Out on the coast at a small sort of B & B called Borgo di Santa Barbara. It is a few Kms past Tropea and not like the one closely named the same in California. In fact we are within sight of the sea, within meters of the railway line and within fewer meters of 6 goats and a rooster who thought it was morning about 5:30 when we arrived. We wanted to flee the touristy areas and guess what...we have. I ...
... Salvatore grows oranges, lemons, figs and onions and we were sent off with a bag of these when we left the next morning..... lovely hospitality. From what we saw, Calabria is like the South Coast in the 80s: sugar cane growing on the side of the road, sea sand on the road, low ugly architecture.

The neighbour came out and we explained who we were and she said to come to her sons restaurant a Piazzetta tonight. Our guide wanted to ...
... of mind. The trip took us through seaside towns and we decided to stop before siesta to get some lunch. I had a sald whilst Don had Pepette which our mussels. It wa lovely and it lifted our spirits for the rest of the trip. As we got closer we clocked in the accommodations directions but it wasn't to be. We headed up a mountain for 20 mins on winding roads wondering how to turn around. I tried to ring but we were out of service and then the no. didn't work. Back to town we went and ...
