The alarm clock goes off at 5.00 am and Christopher jumps out of bed ready to explore the local fish market with Piero and Father Mario, I can barely utter two words ‘Forget it’.
It’s probably a little too early to suggest that it was Caterina’s idea that we all get up at this ungodly hour, so I leave her peacefully in bed. Piero and I set off with Father Mario in the 4 wheel drive of the Seminary. It’s pitch black and there is no traffic, although we do see some children in school uniform – at 5:15 am? Apparently they are going off for tuition before school.
