I was hoping that there wouldn't be any other customers there so I wouldn't look quite so silly, but they must be good at what they do because there were about 10 people crammed into the little shop when we walked in. It smelled wonderful though and I was determined. I managed to order two loaves of bread for 60 cents in Euros. The shop keepers were nice and patient and it was as good as I hoped.
Gerald and I went back up to the flat and shared our spoils while we watched a couple of movies. Later I made Gerald take me down to the beach which was great
The water itself was wonderful. I expected it to be cold but it was perfect, cool and clear. It is the kind of water you could sit in all day and not want to move. It appears to be a popular place and I guess when you are off daily from 1-5pm for Reposa its a great way to beat the heat and humidity.
I was told that yesterday was the hottest day of the year here in Gaeta, reaching over 100 degrees. No where you go has air conditioning so getting acclimated to the heat is a must. Hopefully I'll get there one day. Its definitely going to be a good diet plan though as the heat makes it harder to eat along with the fact you pretty much walk everywhere!
Went to dinner at a little place called the Dutch - more American than Italian but it was good. Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes. I miss my family and friends and my birthday party (yes this is the first year I haven't had one) but this is definitely one for the books.
