Went to the Sunday market in Lettomanoppello to buy ricotta, but the ricotta man wasn't there. The market was half its usual size because of ferragosto, but it was nice in some ways because we could see the buildings that are normally covered by stalls.
We wandered the narrow streets and found a piazza in the centre, where many of the town's population seemed to be. The piazza was charming, with a beautifully restored building that housed the police and town hall. We settled at one of the two cafes and ordered limon sodas. Lettomanoppello is a nice little place.

After the market, we decided to have lunch at Val's (Bar Ottavio). We wanted to have one of her delicious omelettes with zucchini (courgette). The boys just wanted to have her chips! Val had made a trifle with fresh peaches and banana and was so pleased we wanted to eat it as the Italians don't really understand English trifles. Squidge walked up to a complete stranger, grabbed his drink, had a sip, put it down and then walked off. I don't know what I ate/drank when I was pregnant with Squidge, he is such a character.
