Walking over to the other side

Still missing sleep......

semi-overcast 26 °C

Sunday, July 14/19 Day 3

First challenge of the day, find breakfast. Sunday a.m. and most places were closed but fortunately not the bakery up the street that had a large variety of baked goods to choose from. Many of the goods here are yellow, probably because of corn flour in the mix of ingredients.

Today was a wandering day, up to the top of the hill on the north side of the river to a church that towers over the town and then back down through the alleys and across the river and up the hill to the monastery on the south side of the river. So many tourists, mostly from Europe, we heard a lot of Italian where ever we walk. Americans are easy to pick out as most Europeans have a sense of style that is so je ne sais quio and is very attractive. Fred's jet lag was pretty bad today, a long nap in the afternoon may help.

[/i]Dinner was in a small, intimate restaurant with seats out into a narrow pedestrian street. The menu was interesting, partly because we weren’t sure what we were ordering, and delicious. Pastry shells filled with pork, collard greens, with a partially cooked egg on top. Yum….
