Barter trade.

Last week I entered a shop and was greeted by the view of some splendid Dutch flowers. Now I know our beloved neighbours love flowers and especially narcissus and tulips so despite the steep price I bought some and handed them over to my neighbour. Next day a car came flying up our hill. My neighbour and her mother stepped out with a present. Half a chicken and some steaks ‘fatto a casa’.

“Questo pollo vuole un po di tempo!” the old lady said. The gift being an older chicken you have to boil for quite a while to eek out all its flavours . It is our turn now to thank them for the chicken, we’ll see what we can come up with.
