With unpredictable jet lag, we were reluctant to schedule a meet up with Ann, Luke and Wendy but by noon we were feeling up to the challenge of taking a pizza lunch with them at La Duchessa in Piazza Garibaldi.
Of course, we have done this before so it was a bit of a reunion. We chatted over pizza and prochiutto and melone (an in season must) and then went our separate ways.
The rest of the day was spent finding me a pair of sandals and re-arranging our gear for the travel to Spiaggi Romeo some three hours away. Later in the evening I took Jeanne to Pollo Oro (Gold Chicken). This name makes almost no sense at all since there is almost nothing chicken on the menu. Their most memorable items are tomato and olive based stew with coniglio (rabbit) and torta fritta (prochuitto, ham and salami’s stuck between pieces of light deep – fat fried bread). The weather was ideal – a perfect evening and with almost no room for gelato we, nevertheless choked down a single scoop of Nocchiola each on our way back to our room and bed.
