Mrs C and Helen are here. We picked them up at the airport last night. It was lucky, Helen was booked on a slightly later flight which would have meant waiting at the airport three hours after Mrs C's arrival but she was able to get onto the earlier one... so all was well.
It's always weird when new people arrive, seeing the city through fresh eyes. Noticing new things that never occurred and seeing things again you have taken for granted.
Today, I met Chris and his family in Palermo and we went for lunch at Quimbombó. Very nice indeed. Lazy afternoon. Now they are all at the pool and I am considering joining them. It has cooled down ever so slightly so probably a good time to be out.
