Great PaulVDV 2019-07-14 2:01

Hello Beverley,
There are still examples in Europe where the name 'new' is used for a construction that is centuries old. The word 'new' then lets us know that there is even older.
Built in beautiful natural stone and presented from a good angle including the waterplants.
The pub fits well in the surroundings of this bridge. Its stone colour is the same.
I learned a new expression in English: alfresco dining. The word makes the meaning immediately clear but I had not heard it before. My English lessons are dating more than 46 years ago and I've forgotten most of it.
Best regards, Paul

Talking To PaulVDV: English

Thank you for your warm critique, Paul.
46 years makes no difference! Your English is superb!

Some people think my Italian is good!
I have never ever had a lesson in Italian in my life but I do sometimes use the Google translator!

Have a lovely Sunday,
