My last night in Florence, dinner alone, and I decided to give myself a treat. Dinner at Golden View Open Bar, with a look right over to where Lucy Honeychurch stayed in her Room with a View. Jane's husband told me about this restaurant, and after enjoying a meal there I am sending a kiss his way :-).....no, I'm sending three kisses, the Italian way!
As soon as I saw that they had fish soup, or actually hot seafood soup, I knew what to have for a starter. I had a hard time when they forgot to give me a spoon at first, and I didn't want to ask for it, what if they eat fish soup with fork and bread in Florence........ I did a pretty good job but must confess it was all much easier when the waitress came running over with a spoon for me. So much for my stubbornness!
Thank you very much for your comments on yesterday's post. It is good to know that I am not all alone here in the blogging world. I must tell you though that the hotel room you saw is not the one where I sleep, but the livingroom of Hotel Scoti, where I write my blog and my emails, and where I meet my family on Skype.
Today I am on my way up to Venice by train. I'll meet Mauro, Dagmar is coming down from Austria, I'll have a walk with dottore Carlo Feli, and on Saturday I'll meet Antonella, a blog reader who has invited me to spend the week-end with her and her family.
I'll try to get online, but don't know if I'll manage.
