Questo autobus per mercato Palladio?

Yes, it was the right bus so we hopped on and went out to the fabulous Palladio mall. Unfortunately, this very up-scale market has been turned into an Italian version of Wal-Mart. There is still a fantastic deli and beautiful veggies, meat, and miles of pasta, but it's just not the same. It's the only thing close to a big box store that I've seen, unless you count the Salvatore Feraggamo store in Florence that takes up a whole block. We bought some goodies and caught the bus back, all in about an hour. You can use one bus ticket for coming and going, or anywhere else, providing it's within 90 minutes. Great bargain.

This afternoon (5 PM) we are going to a musical program -- piano -- and then out to dinner. We did not take our mystery bus ride yesterday afternoon; the Patient had not slept well and was not feeling up to par. But after a long nap and a good night's sleep he is back on track and eager to get out to the Palladio. We would have gotten out early this morning but woke to find the water shut off in the apartment for some repairs. All fixed by 10:30.

Internet closed tomorrow. Next post on Monday. Happy weekend all.
