On the way past the Supermercato Pam, I ran into one of the young women that own the hair salon where I went a few weeks ago. She gave me a lift to the wine store, which was a good distance away. It was already 12:30 and I wanted to be sure to get there before it closed for siesta. (I did have to retrace my steps from the wine store and then back to Martignano carrying all the bags, of course).
