... Very pleasant in the sunshine, and loads of dogs for Joy to photograph - see her separate entry on the dogs of Parma!!
After lunch, Joy went back to the Duomo (and photos of dogs!) while Michael simply strolled around. Very relaxing. Now, the reason for a lazy day is that we have decided to add a visit to Caravaggio town while we are in Milan - we move on to there tomorrow - which will mean that the next three days are going to be ...
... shop for underwear in Yamamay! They grizzle at each other, they growl, they ignore, they whine.... They prance, they drag their feet, they amble and loll, they patiently wait, they ask 'can we go now?', they can be an unhappy fella, they pee, they c**p.....

About one person in three walking the streets of Parma has a dog with them, and these are highly strung pedigree breeds too. Many are the very small breeds, and in this cold weather most are covered with great little jackets. Joy photographed many of them, and plans to do a theme blog on the dogs of Parma. Hmm, have to wait and see if she is barking up the wrong tree with that ...
... hills of Urbino, and the narrow alleys of Bologna and Siena, as Parma is very flat, and most of the streets are quite wide, though there a quite a few narrow side streets. It seems a fairly quiet town too, from what we saw on a Saturday night, but maybe we were just in the wrong places. Tomorrow is gallery day, first the National Gallery, and then the Stuard Collection of 270 (!!) paintings. You'llno doubt hear all about them from Joy ...
