A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
But no one can speak to a horse, of course,
That of course, because that horse,
Is the famous second course...
Rich Say came to visit recently, and as always with The Say things were interesting. First off we were really hungry.
In fact Rich was soooo hungry he could eat a horse. (This joke was used all week)
Now if there are any horse lovers out their this may offend, but let me tell you... As fun as they are to ride, to pat, or of course, of course to bet on, their true potential will only be realised once butchered, stewed and served up on a plate. The Veronese figured this out a while ago and now Cavallo Stew is the local speciality.
It was in fact very tasty, though I did feel a little odd about it at first, the taste soon won me over. Rich didn't need any convincing.
Afterwards Rich was almost as full as Clare's 21 week belly.
We also went clubbing at Verona's famous club, Alter Ego. It's a superb club hanging from the hillside above the city, with spectacular views and tunes.
We made some friends.
And we appreciated the cultural differences.
Whilst Rich was in town we were also privileged enough to meet his friend - Papa.
Clare went to bed and Papa and Rich and I stayed up late, drinking at the pizza shop downstairs.
It was fun but I couldn't play the next day. Sore head.
As always Verona is about the food.
But we did also see some sites.
(how amazing does this look?)
(it's just a building)
Clare and Rich did anyway - I was stuck downstairs.
Brilliantly they have put in a lift for the tower that is only up five steps?!
Next stop Lake Lugano with Daniel and Robyn...
