With Marianna busy, I headed to explore the market of Domodossola with Maria Carla. Every Saturday they host a market that draws many people from all over. Due to Domodossola being so close to the Swiss border the market brings a lot of them by train.
We wandered along, Maria Carla buying a beautiful pink scarf before we sat down at a restaurant in the main square and enjoyed a small glass of Crodino.
Crodino is a non-alcoholic drink that is usually served before or after a meal. We enjoyed it with nuts, olives and chips as a snack. It comes from the town of Crodo which we visited the other day. It's made by Compari .
After lunch we went into the sitting room and got a photo on their sofa which they usually take Christmas photos on.
We left their beautiful home and walked over to the football fields where Luca was playing with his team. I later learned today that they won 7-0. We had not known the score as we had only seen 3 goals scored by their team.
I must say, the surrounding views of Domo with the Italian alps surrounding are so beautiful. I am truly fortunate that I have been welcomed here and am able to stay with these wonderful people. I pinch myself everyday because of it.
Next up: Arona.
