I think we´ve found a resolution to one of the problems we discovered whilst in India. Kat (as I already knew) likes to sleep for a bit longer than I do. So, rather than me bounce around the room in the morning pestering her to get up, I´m going to fill my early mornings supping coffees, watching the world go by, reading a book, and hopefully keeping this diary up-to-date
Just before we left Simon & Becky kindly lent us a couple of books - I´ve nearly completed Touching the Void, which is all about escape from certain death on a mountain in Peru. Given that we´re going through mountains in Peru I don´t think I´ll let Kat read it after me!
So yesterday, after my solo coffee morning, we headed up to Palermo on the underground. It´´s a couple of miles north west of the centre and a nice park filled area of the city. We discovered a lido that we´re going to head back to tomorrow and also an observatory/planetarium, which much to my disappointment, seems to be open only to provide employment to the single member of staff who tells you that everything is closed...
Palermo is also home to a musem about Eva Peron, which was pretty interesting. As the photo of her car shows, and as Kat commented - it was amazing that a midget could achieve so much in such a short life.
Last night, to economise after the tango show blow out, we had a civilised take out of Burger King and Rose´ wine - which drew some queer looks from the other people in the fast food queue...
Also, I´ve just realised that the football shop, with the photo montage of Maradona´s goal against England, has closed down - which makes me happy.
