We had grand plans for leaving Pavia – we were going to make the rounds at all of our favorite places, have a nice dinner (with real tablecloths!) out, eat a big ice cream at one of the best gelaterias in Italy, and go for leisurely bike rides to remember the green countryside and beautiful sunsets.
What happened is a frantic stuffing of items into boxes, grining and bearing it through countless train delays, braving the mosquitoes to get a pizza a portar via (to go) or to watch the game in the few minutes we were still awake before collapsing into bed. Needless to say, it wasn’t the most beautiful way to say goodbye to a home we lived in for over a year and a half.
Therefore, I’ve decided to do a virtual goodbye tour through Pavia, with some highlights and addresses that you can use if you ever decide to go there, which I’ll post soon.
But first, I’ll leave you with a view of what happens when the suoceri (SWOH-chair-ee) from Puglia come into town for the weekend. This must have been one of the most expensive home-delivered meals ever. La Melanzane Parmiggiana (Eggplant parmesan) Notice our little mozarella nodini, little knots, in the background.
