From Venice we stopped at La Basilica di Sant’apollinare in Classe along the way to Assisi, where we were to stay overnight. I believe my first tour of Europe ten years ago also visited this city but my memory was very vague. We visited the Assisi Cathedral (Cattedrale di Assisi) where everyone was shhhhhhhed to death and then headed back for a hotel dinner. I was a bit late for dinner having had to see the doctor for a persisting illness that I’ve had for 3.5 weeks now. It of course started raining on my way to the pharmacy. Not sure if this doctor really knew what was wrong with me but I do know that he prescribed me multiple extremely strong medications so I will hope for the best. He also informed me I have a piece of wax in my ear that is about 2 inches long. I guess I should do something about that when I get back to Austria.
The group got a bit rowdy again given the unlimited wine at dinner and our table was told to quiet down. I was surprised that Americans in Italy were being told to be quiet at a restaurant but I suppose I have witnessed stranger occurrences in my almost 29 years on this earth. We only stayed one night in Asissi but we did get to SLEEP IN until 7am this time. Grazie a dio!
