We once went from Plymouth to Roscoff on Brittany Ferries and the whole ferry was full of Elvises.  Hilarious!


Paul, the place in Italy looks wonderful!

He was a very small saint wasn't he?

However it's a very big plate of antipasti.  That would be enough for a full meal for me!

Not something I'd look forward to seeing even once every 10 years, frankly!  Yukkk!

I reckon, with a mixed salad, it would be enough for the two of us as our dinner Patti!

A small capuchino gelati to follow, I think!

I don't think ol' faustus is one of the bigger saints

I just found it slightly amusing he comes out for a jaunt round the village for an hour or two every 10 years.

That made me giggle... I meant the size of the corpse!  It's very tiny.

Reminds me of a story about our one and only trip to Italy together, it was many years ago - c. 1989 I think.  We won the holiday, 2 weeks in an apartment at Castello Vicciomaggio (sp?) 13 miles south of Florence + flights and a hire car.  We had to take it in January as we had the hotel and couldn't holiday any other time.  Everything was closed, we had to drive miles to find a restaurant... so one cold day we spent in Florence and decided to stay and have an early supper in a lovely restaurant from the Friuli area.  We ordered two plates of mixed sausages that came with all manner of sliced cold, hot cooked sausages and lovely pates, fruit garnishes etc.  They were enormous... but we ate our way through them.  Later in the holiday we returned to the restaurant and ordered the same thing.  The waitress looked totally shocked and told us the platter was for sharing as a main course!
