Having arrived back in Munich from Kazakhstan the whole family got into the car to enjoy the Pentecost school holidays at the Adriatic Sea in Lido di Jesolo, Italy. Quite an experience to board a plane at 3.50am (the true red eye clipper) and, only 20 hours later, sit in a Pizzeria in Northern Italy led by an Indian family who serve quite good pizzas but rather lousy currys – as it turned out. So, if you ever happen to pass Mori on the way from Rivereto to Lake Garda: have a pizza at the local pizzeria Terra Nera (which claims to serve Italian and Indian cuisine), but don’t go for a curry. The Chicken Tikka Masala was god awful.

The journey from Munich to Jesolo. Can be done in 5 hours, but on the first day of school holidays it takes longer. Much longer.

The journey was horrible: it turned out that we were not the only family who had the idea to spend the first week of the Pentecost school holiday at the sea in Italy, so it was slow going. Eventually, though, we arrived. Arrived at a very nice flat in a new development done by Richard Meier, some NYC based architect, excellent! That’s how the old man introduces the project – so check this out.

The next day we hung around and relaxed at the sea, the pool, a pleasant beach restaurant and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly until we found this:

What the f*%$! Whoever produces, sells or buys that sort of crap should have his head examined.

This is so sick. Italy has its fair share of clowns, Beppo Grillo and Berlusconi leading the pack by far, but I fail to see any fun in that. Caribinieri – shut this down!
