What a beautifull hotel the Rotary contacts organized us here next to a orchard of fruits and grapes
Last night arrived late around 7 pm a little dark and had to find room and wash and come down for the local clubs meeting
What a friendly bunch a interpreter was arranged by them a young girl and she was very help full and I could get through interesting questions on economic agricultural medicine and renewable energy
We were treated on a 4 course dinner but the Italians do not eat early around 10.30 is their forte.
Asked why so late it is answered that the north eat 7-8 pm they eat late and still enjoy a siesta in the middle of the day
Very impressed with the club work in Argentina at a hospital for babies and a weeklong holiday for dis-abled here in Pescara area. Amazing how much resources this club musters and they claim to have 7 Paul Harris awards
The surprise of the dinner was the lovely desert consisted of large Eoman like bowl of lovely Fruit. I am not a big fruit lover but this offer send all the right signals through my body. Wish Polly could see me sticking into this fruit bowl it prove ones and all that we do some times eat not meat but fruit for desert
Lovely sleep and in the breakfast room this morning I asked the date from the waiter and on 29 I realized it is our wedding anniversary, congratulating Polla for being such a loyal friend and partner, and we left the room for a tour to Luciano where a miracle once took place where bread and wine-changed to real blood and human flesh.
It is a huge cathedral dating out from many years 450.
Hey this is old and what impressed me are old people working on building sites
They are not fast but the plaster and brick up and paint.
On a question to my hosts on why these old people are still working ?
"Italians like to work they work all the time"
Ok ok ok maybe it is true
We had a drink Italian style at a bar more like coffee shop down south but you can stand and just have a small espresso and off you go.
What worries me on Italian middle class families living in flats on top of each other
Where do the children play or go around ride a bicycle?
Only answer I got that there are small parks around for kids but I wonder how you can grow up in such little space
Nevermind I need to discuss it with sociologist the influence on kids
Any case we where treated on lunch again at a hotel overlooking the lovely Adriatic coast
This coast is so beautifull lovely emerald blue. With fishing pools created by artificial breakwater walls and a permanent fishing base on a stilts where nets are drawn
Oki doki we siesta today and are guests for a beach party dinner
