Roberto ...

This is Roberto, the lovely man who charmed me with his willingness to take me by the arm and show me around Lerici ... explaining in Italian while I replied in my English, with that smattering of Italian I have.

Maddalena translated Roberto explaining that, next time, we’re cycling to a village nearby’.  I’m worried about my level of fitness and will have to go into training to keep up with him.  I can still see his quietly bemused smile, on that Sunday morning when I huffed and puffed my way up the castle stairs.

Maddalena and GP were so very good to me during my stay there in Leirici, and meeting their friend Roberto was just another delightful moment that mixed with so many other delightful moments in bella Lerici.
