This morning we went to Patinella Angela's place which was actually at Elena’s house. She is a psychiatrist and clearly well off. Her house was big and lovely and they are also building an added shop/apartment nearby as an investment. Her husband Peppino, although in a wheel chair, is animated and very outgoing. Conversation with Craig was easy and the lunch was wonderful. Amazing tagliatelli with a meat/carrot sauce; then there was ...

... agent only sells train tickets and can't - or won't - help. So much for Sepino, we'll save it for next time.
Speaking of trains, Lesley and James arrive from Rome on the 5:30 train this evening and, as per tradition, we all head out to meet them at the station bar, where we share drinks and travel stories. We get them settled in at Hotel Mary, 2 streets ...
