Four hour lunch at a unique restaurant just outside Ferrara, Italy. Luca, and Stefano took the train from Florence. There is just one stop in Bologna and the whole train trip is about an hour.
We checked into our hotel which is primitive at best. The phone did not work, but we are staying here because it has a bathtub.
No CNN but we saw Trump arrive at the courthouse on BBC. It is really interesting to hear the comments of the foreign media, totally different take on things.
Heard from lots of people for my birthday. As of 2 p.m. EST, all the children, their spouses and six of seven grandchildren have checked in. Am I keeping score? Hell yes!
However, I think my Wife keeps even more careful score..
My birthday started well with a wonderful note from daughter Beth in the middle of my night, but then I got up to see the Heat could not even win a second game, and the Marlins got slaughtered.
Luca went back to Florence after lunch. Stefano is staying in Ferrera but we plan to go to Bologna for the day.
Very tiring eating and drinking all day. I might write more later.
Thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes
See you tomorrow. At least that is my plan.
