Back to Milano on a Misty Morning

Our stay in Bologna was both restful and exhilarating. After settling back into the Echo Starhotel we stayed in when we first arrived in Italy, we had coffee and tried to find the florist shop owned by Enzo Roma, the father of Alexandro who works for Tim at Ciccio's. The florist shop was less than a kilometre from our hotel, however we couldn't find it.

our hotel was one hundred meters from the Central Station. The view from our room and pics of the grand station.

Later in the day I telephoned Alexandro's father Enzo and he came to the hotel and had a drink.
He is a florist and Karen received a beautiful white rose.

Enzo convinced us that we should go for dinner later that night at a traditional Pugliese restaurant. The Pugliese region is where his family comes from. The food was very traditional and the experience was such a surprise. He is learning English so was pleased to be able to practice in conversation with English speakers.
