... it on the cheese front. There are cheese shops everywhere, with cubed offerings for the tourists to try and I ventured into several in succession one afternoon, though I became choosy and only went for the ones with cocktail sticks, having watched a group of young lads maul a bowl full of pieces with their hands just before I got there... I didn't like to contemplate where their hands might have been... The tasting lesson was at the ...
