Nancy's illness proved to be non-Covid and very brief, 24 hours or less. Take that, germs! or viruses! I suppose I shouldn't tempt fate by gloating over N's fast recovery...
Today we took a nice long walk (about 5 km each way) along the Canale Navile, a waterway north and a little west of the center of Bologna. Though the scenery is not spectacular, our lunch at at Trattoria da Sandro al Navile was really great. Nancy had tortellini in brodo di capone, and I had tagliatelle Bolognese. We also drank the greater part of a bottle of Sangiovese red wine, rather light and very good (Spaletti Principe di Ribano). We also had some nice conversation with the waiters, including a young man from Iran, who gave us an extra dessert and as we were leaving gave us a small bottle of balsamic vinegar as a present.
Apologies to our friend who asked us not to brag about the food in Bologna! But the food was really good, especially after a brisk walk.
Instead of posting pictures below, I am posting a slide show from our walk as the next post.
