^ Very nice write up! Thank you.

You're most welcome. And you should definitely go!

A woman - who spoke no English - answered, but I made my point clear and she gestured that she would call, and then another gesture that he would take his scooter. True to her words (or signs) he arrived two minutes later on his scooter, excusing himself and then opening the doors to his sartoria. Another two minutes later espressos arrived and we were all set...
