I was going to write something about the very pleasant long weekend I've just had in Italy, but then my sister phoned to check I was ok. I hadn't seen the news about the second earthquake.
So, yes, we're back safely. That was more or less where we were visiting, although the worst effects seem to be in small villages rather than Mantova and Bologna).
I hope that everyone we met there is ok after yesterday's events.
It's more than a little sobering to realise that if we stayed an extra day, we'd have been evacuated from our hotel in Bologna Monday morning.
