We went to Padua today. We met a lot of very nice people. Mostly Americans from San Francisco, New York and some other place. Plus a very kind Italian train guard (we were on the wrong class of train for our ticket). The highlight of the day was meeting Dr. Matilde Z. She is, how shall I put this, freshly minted as a doctor and her friends were playing tricks on her. She seemed to enjoy it and we were rather impressed too. This was the ‘before’ shot.Note the wrong date! Later corrected. And here is the midpoint photo:Last time we saw here she was on her knees with her back to us. She had a hose pipe going into her mouth and the hose was connected to a wine bottle. No photos allowed from there on. Ah well. Girls will be girls but at least one lady was not amused.I think the hose was ‘borrowed’ as the policeman shouted “Stop thief”. The trouble is he was pointing at me. I never touched her hose or she mine.Mrs. Ha was on hand to keep control.Padua seems to enjoy la dolce vita.
Colour is a must…………..Even if they do think horses are blue in Padua. Old Scottish saying – You can take a White Horse anywhere but not a Blue.So there we are, everything you needed to know about Padua. I hope you enjoy. And if you feel unwell perhaps you should ask for Matilde. I know I shall.
