Off for a wee break in Minorca tomorrow - self catering so lots of excercise carrying the water and wine up to the apartment.

Wanted Egypt, but health checks delayed departure - now 40C in Red Sea area - will do Egypt November - InshAllah.

My old home town Spot - I loved the Tre Pini Restaurant in Viale Arbe - not TOO far from the Stazione Centrale - the Rugnione Trifolate were magic!

We lived just round the corner in  Magiolina - Villagio Giornolisti - tell them va fa'n culo was asking for them?

did you like it here?

I'm right in the center and find it noisy and crowded.....every bastard beeping their horn every 5 seconds.

plus, as a fat pasty English bloke with white legs in the heart of some seriously expensive fashion shops, i'm right out of place Very Happy

Mary loved it - I did not really enjoy the hassle or the heat in summer - did you know that by law! - a certain number of services such as farmacies have to stay open in August or everyone would be at the coast?

Try Rinascente near the Duomo - cheap as chips...watch you pockets near the Duomo...

Love Milan - it's all an attitude look good yourself and don't worry if the infrastructure around you is falling down. Maybe that should be love Italians...

Anyway 32 here for a max. I likey like it.

Walking along the Promenad in Mahon there was a stunning white Mustang - on the back shelf the original US reg plates - Mary took a photo of me drooling beside it.

If I knew how to post photos I would - also - a massive yacht thing called Knot at Work - I really have not suffered from jealousy as I have been more fortunate than a Govan kid with no arse in his trousers should be...

But.............................felt a wee bit "them and us" feeling...............only until we found a wee pizza place, no customers but us...Massimo struggling after three months open here...made a magic pizza for us and a wee chat...I told him my old story about the barber in UK talking to his customer;

Where are you going on Holiday?
Italy
Don't go to Italy mate - the food is crap, the wine is crap and ther are all mafia thieves!

We are booked - my wife wants to visit the Vatican...

The Vatican - 300000 people in the Piazza - she will see the Pope from 2 miles away

Six weeks later - guy in barbers - So, how was Italy? I did warn you!

Italy was wonderful, the food and wine and the people were great.

But the Vatican - did your wife see the Pope?

Well - one morning we got up early - walking across Piazzo San Pietro only us and the Pope...

Ballocks pal - next you will tell me you actually talked to the Pope?

Not exactly - the Pope talked to me!

What did the Pope say to you Pal?

He looked me up and down and said...

Where did you get that farking horrible haircut?


We returned a couple of days later and Massimo asked us if we had heard from the Pope?

He must be the only Italian who has not heard this joke?

I know one Massimo, I happened to know he was from Sicily. I found myself in Sicily in Piazza Massimo, Massimo Square. I thought great this must must be named after this guy's family... took some pictures. Came back to Switzerland and checked the company Intranet, Loads of Massimo's just in this company. Told Massimo this story he thought it was very funny.


Glad you liked Mahon and the little island (or whatever the translation is), drooling over a Mustang, possibly too much sun....
