Saturday Sept 28
Today we had a slow down day, we fixed a nice breakfast at our apartment, mostly thanks to Untours, and then we proceeded to wander Atrani and Amalfi, buying dolce and vino and other grocery necessities. We stopped at place called Cuoppo di' Amalfi that I'd read about on TripAdvisor and had a cone each of their fried seafood delicacies. I had cod and chips, Rhea had small fishes (anchovies) and chips all fried up, Will post pictures of the before and after! It was very good, we had a beer with it and sat outside on small stools with a tiny table and enjoyed everything around us for a while. We also had a scoop of pistachio gelato from Pansa, it was delicious. It was a boiling hot day, all the shopkeepers said it was as hot as August and very crowded in the square. We agreed the best thing would be to go home, do some laundry, and go swimming in the Mediterranean! So that is just what we did. After laundry was finished (in what has to be the smallest washer in the world, but hey, it works!) we changed and went to the small beach at Castiglione, close to our apartment. What a refreshing thing to do, it cooled us off to the core! So much that we came back home, changed again, and went to Le Arcante again. This time we had shrimp with mint mayonnaise, (sooo delicious!!) and pasta with eggplant, tomato, and basil. That was followed by pork scallopine with limone. Again, all so good, and served by a perfectly handsome and courteous gentleman. Fireworks across the bay completed our night.
