Dave and Claire just set off to Rome to pick up two friends before heading up to Tuscany for the next phase of their travels. But speaking of phases:
During the week that we were together here in Narni, we spent many an hour in the evenings drinking apperitivi, munching on assorted nibbles, and playing Phase 10. We played so much our cards have become sticky and soft. We played so much that our eyes began to cross. We played so much that we when we finally did go to bed we dreamt of runs of nine and sets of four. In fact, we played so much that Chiara finally won a game. Bravissima, Chiara!!
