Saturday the British have invaded. In the afternoon we go to one of the local bars to watch Italy play France in the Six Nations Rugby matches. There are groups of inebriated British men all about. Bachelor party time! Some are wearing the give-away green hats from Guinness. I vacillate between being entertained and annoyed with their antics while I try to watch the match.
Sunday is St. Patrick's Day. At noon it is 20C (68F) and sunny. A beautiful day for a walk and Jack's Irish Pub at the Marina seems to be an appropriate destination. We arrive a little after 1 pm and order a pint of Guinness for William and a Jameson's and Ginger for me. A few of the other tables are occupied with people wearing green enjoying Guinness and/or a shot of Jameson's. Slanté!
