FROM THE POSTCARD

 

SATURDAY 20th May 1978

      

Dear Mother, 

Well the weather is still glorious

We went on a 1/2 day excursion this morning

Visited a museum, then this palace, which is now a casino

The picture on the right was painted by an Italian painter on the ceiling & represents the 4 seasons

It took him 4 1/2 years to paint. 

Can you imagine doing all that with your head bent back. 

Bad enough painting on ordinary ceiling. 

Tomorrow we go on a full day trip round the island

Had a boat trip the other afternoon. 

      

When we came in today we had 2 little pots with slits in for money standing on the side with a card, 

saying with the compliments of the management. 

They are replicas of old tombs.

 They used to put 2 bodies in each! 

Have a lovely holiday!

    

   

Bye for now 

Love,

Ivor & Eileen
