And finally the actual parting from Gianni. Interesting bloke I must say. He turned out to be quite a linguist though he did complain that he didn't get to speak enough German in Germany. Well what do you expect if you don't drink?
Here's another small suburban pub but despite my previous statement I didn't actually speak to anyone here except ...
