I fell in love with the country, the people, the food, the wine .....and most of all with my camera. I'd hoped to go back again this year but as the worm turns, it was not to be and so I will hope that perhaps things will shake out a bit differently for next year. I'll wish at least.
Aside from more packing and sorting chores this weekend I managed two trips to the movies, to see Identity Thief and Quartet. One was sheer amusement and predictable. The other was a delight in dramatic character portrayal and left you believing you had been there in the moment and not at the movies at all. Mind you I am a sucker for anything with Billy Connolly or Maggie Smith in the cast!
So the latter movie, whilst perhaps not the usual mind numbing commercial US fare, was definitely the better choice!! And highly recommended.
