Eis at the Casa Pompa

Ice cream, beer and World Cup matches are the flavour of summer in Germany. Down at the Casa Pompa (as in so many other places) a crowd of varying size gathers around a flatscreen TV. The excitement is palpable as the warm weather continues along with Germany’s success. But after a brief sojourn at home, my generous parents have today escorted me across the Channel to the precious stone set in a silver sea. To the girl who served me tea at Heathrow airport, I tried to explain the novelty of ordering something in English for the first time in four months. She was nonplussed. After a spot of relaxing in Bath and a mini break in the Cotswolds, Mum and Dad will deposit me the in the safe hands of Keren before leaving for London, and then home. Every silver lining has a cloud.
