Amalfi - One Thing You Can't Find...

...in Amalfi is...hair conditioner. They haven't had hair conditioner for Mrs. TBF in either of our hotels. So, she thought she could just buy some in town. We went to a few stores: plenty of shampoo, but no hair conditioner. I guess Italians don't feel they need it. Hey, wait a minute...Mrs. TBF is Italian-American, and she goes through gallons of hair conditioner. Go figure...
But anyway...we went out to dinner tonight at a really good restaurant in Amalfi called Risorante Marina Grande. It wasn't anything fancy, just real good food right on the seashore. We had our fill of pasta, seafood, beef, cheese, wine, etc., etc. We are full, and we are happy.
Now it's time to go to bed. You'll be happy to know that we have "very soft lee-poes". At least that's what the maid called them. The conversation went something like this:

Maid: "I give you very soft lee-poes."

TBF: "Lee-poes? Do you mean pillows."

Maid: (disgusted with herself) "Si...pee-loes."

TBF: "Grazie."


So, it's time for me to go to bed and have pleasant dreams on our extremely soft "lee-poes". Good night.
