While I was waiting for my Mom & sis to get ready to go, I stepped out of the hotel, and walked three doors down. There was an Italian deli/restaurant there. See, some years ago, I had the pleasure of tasting an Italian hard candy as a postprandial item from an Italian restaurant in the neighborhood. It was called Sperlari Anise; it had an anise taste, which is vaguely like licorice. I really liked it, and I used to buy it in bulk from the restaurant. Well, I can't find it locally anymore, so I thought I'd just take a moment and see if they carried it. They did, and I bought out two-thirds of their stock, and ran it upstairs to ferret away in our luggage.
When the group was ready, we checked out, and loaded up the vehicle. forestcats and I decided to take Mom over to the mansions that we'd seen the previous day, just to see how she'd like it. She loved it, and had a good time looking things over.
For lunch, we'd found an Afghan restaurant that advertised vegetarian dishes; this for my sis, who is a pesca-ova-lactoherbivore. We thought the food was pretty good, but it was a bit too spicy for Mom's taste.
A little more wandering around a boutique shopping district, and then we dropped off Mom and sis at the airport; we made one more trip to Uncle Hugo's and then back to the airport for our own flight.
I liked it.
