Lunch on the Lagoon

Today is another day off from toil; well, it is Sunday, after all. Marco and Ornella are 'having us for lunch' at their lagoon-side house - although I hope that they just mean that they are feeding and watering us. They normally turn out something very good; last time it was stewed oxtail, which takes hours but it just fell off the bone and was delicious. They have just come back from seeing their children in Blighty so I think that today they might just make pasta - but pasta made by Italians is worth having.

They have promised to report on the state of the nation, which they found to be worse, this trip, than they were expecting. I dare say that it will take some time for recovery to set in after the policies of the last thirty years.

Meanwhile, here is another lagoon shot,not taken from their house, although it might as well have been.

Buon appetito!
