The €1.40 stuff was almost drinkable. The 80c carton was cheaper than
juice, so we decided not to attempt that.
Sadly we only managed one day on the beach. Can't complain about
views like that.
Round the other time of the rocky bit the old town's built on, there's
another beach. You could probably set your watch by the deckchairs.
The nearby (and more touristy) town of Sperlonga is a bit like Fondi,
except they built it on a hill. This definitely means cars can't go
in the old town, because the streets all have steps on them. There's
also a newer part of town with lots of hotelsKeep going up, and you get to the main square (which you can also
reach by a road at the back), which is a nice place to have a wee ice
(I've not been able to post my holiday pics, since until now, I've
only been able to get them onto my computer, and not had net access at
home. But that's now sorted, so here they are..)This is the wee town in which we were staying. The apartment was in
the middle of the old town, where the streets were all about as narrow
as this one. You'd think it was too small to fit a car down, until a
Fiat sneaks up on you and forces you to hide in a side street.There was a nice little roof terrace upon which to enjoy the sun,
though. Usually, half the sky would be cloudy - it's been a while
since I did any geography, but I'd say it's probably something to do
with the nearby hills, which you could see from the back window.
It brings me internet and it brings me tv, and it's just been installed.It's got some rather nifty video-on-demand stuff too. I'm currently watching the first episode of Dr Who. And if I was paying them more, I'd get the rest of the series, and lots more channels.
Registering as a new 'patinet' today. The reading material includes the National Trust magazine, a book about stealth aircraft, and the Viking Direct stationery catalogue.
Note also the ridiculously over-postered wall. And great news for meerkats with internet access!
