The showers are about 3 feet square - large enough for standing upright, but as soon as you raise your elbows to wash something....bang! Bang!.....and forget about your feet. And washing your hair is an adventure!! They have covered the floor with a substance that turns slippery as ice the moment water touches it, so there is the balance factor too! Now I know why the hygiene factor differs in Europe! Lol!!
You would think that a restaurant that is nice enough to have damask table cloths and napkins would have enough funds for a toilet seat!!!! What is the deal with balancing over the porcelain bowl????
Taking the bus gets old after a while ( for this person who jumps in her car for any errand) but they run pretty regularly and I am getting the hang of it!
Cobblestones and canes are a tough combination!! I have found a cane here to replace the one that was taken and it is a huge help as it lets me sit when the sciatic nerve gets too irritated. It has a seat that opens.but the cobblestones grab on to the bottom!
Pat no longer has to trek out (2 doors down) for expresso in the morning - we have now learned to make it and the stove even has a setting for the expresso pot so the flame doesn't get too wide!!
Carrying the groceries home has proven somewhat less of a challenge as we found a cart with wheels in the shared closet on our floor!! Yay!!!
Oh yeah, I broke out in hives the first day I went to the center - very specific places-under my right arm to the elbow and on my right leg. The next day it was the left u dream to the elbow and the left toe - go figure??? I still itch a bit but it is getting netter! Above^_ I mean left arm - for some reason, it won't let me correct!
Ciao, amici! Enough be-atchin' for now!
|Our little ( hold three people basta) elevator!!!! I love it!,,,|
