The main mission for today was to meet Jeff, who is from the USA, and take him to la Diana for lunch. Jeff bears the responsibility for a number of us taking the plunge, and meeting for the very first time, in Rome, in 2009. We became the Sisterhood of the Travelling Scarves.
So, here’s what I saw and did on the way to the meeting place.
These 3 young ladies are from Bristol University, and are here to take samples of canal water, for analysis back in Bristol. They were a bit lost in Dorsoduro, so I walked with them to the Rio Marin in Santa Croce.
These meringues were HUGE!
This is Attila, well known cat in Cannaregio
I walked with Jeff to the Ghetto, and was pleased to spy this doorway with old Roman numerals beside the modern numbers. But, the Roman numbers don't seem to match the modern ones. Trish .. help!
This is Jeff, well known traveller! I presented him with a red scarf, and made him an honourary Sister! We had a lovely lunch at La Diana.
