A lovely party

A very hot sticky night here in San Giorgio and hard to believe that just a week ago  we were having to wear jackets sitting outside. We had gone to celebrate Pam’s 60th birthday. (The photo of Pam and Michael has appeared before but as I forgot to take my camera to the party I decided to reuse the photo)

Sitting out under the trees in their garden we were wined and dined in style with the full moon adding something to the occasion. As the evening progressed the climate became chilly and shawls, wraps and jackets were put on and with the arrival of the cake refuge was taken indoors.

Despite the low temperatures the people at the party were warm, friendly and interesting with a wide range of ages and backgrounds.  At the table I was fortunate to be sitting between Pam’s daughter Katherine on leave from Hong Kong where she manages the office for “Get Reading Right” a system of teaching reading using synthetic phonics and Pam’s sister in law Catherine who is an artist and when I mentioned stopping at Mulhouse when driving back to England asked if I had seen the “Ricola Building as it’s a “must see” of modern architecture by Herzog & de Meuron. I had to confess my ignorance of modern architecture. Below is the building I’ll be looking out for next time we drive to London:
