Friday, June 30, 2006: Weights and measures

Friday is market day in Locorotondo so we cycled into town and brought a few items including a couple of coverlets for the twin bedded room and more kitchen utensils. It would appear that few Italian housewives measure out their ingredients as we have been looking for a measuring jug for the last half dozen visits and only just found one. As for measuring spoons, I think we will have to bring a set from the UK.

In the late afternoon we went to the local furniture shop and settled on a different day bed, a table with two three-seater banquettes and two dining chairs. Handed over EUR 50 deposit and agreed to call them when we are back in September to arrange delivery.

A good "Italian" woman don't need no stinkin' measuring aids! You gotta "eye" it!
