Attended the Oxford Alumni Weekend in Rome. Cosy appartment, and then Somerville was allowed up late for a Somerville dinner: he got on well with the nes president, Jan Royall. Both of us got to the day of talks at the Cavalieri hotel, good lunch there, and on the Sunday Pembroke was allowed into the Ambassador's lunch. Met the physicist who gave one of the talks

Wondrous views over the countryside & smart room. Buns in San Gemini and in Orvieto were worth getting cold for!

Then back to Moraira, and a few days later Giuseppe arrived- from his shop window in Orvieto! My, we will have to behave ourselves now
