Woken early morning by Zio throwing stones on the roof, and a few seconds later Andre outside our window checking in to see that we are ok or perhaps a subtle hint to rise and shine.
We get dressed and met them at the café next door for breakfast; we ate freshly baked cornetti (Italian croissant) with nutella and embraced the sea views of Mataverna.
As we headed back to San Lucido we had been told there is an Australian woman who had recently moved here to live, she was elderly and reportedly had a career in Australian Politics.
We are taken to her house (it’s a small country town thing that everyone knows each other so it isn’t as odd as it might sound going there) and able to have a chat. She is quite unwell and trying to seek medical attention but with the language barrier it’s quite difficult. She loves it here that much that she has now made it her permanent residence.
The evening saw us head to a Spanish restaurant called Mucho Mas. This was a groovy new restaurant/ bar owned by a friend of Andre. We enjoyed paella, Calabrian wine and of course Amaro.. X
