I've been sitting enjoying company with friends in a restaurant in central Milan this evening. Five of us bundled into an impossibly small taxi on the way to the restaurant and then met two more at the venue.
We talked about politics in Italy, and their wish to somehow increase the number of women in Italian political parties. I couldn't help thinking of Ilona Staller (Cicciolina), who made her name in another way before moving into politics.
Then at some point we moved onto James Bond, and like most people I feel as if I've seen the film, although its still on my 'to do' list.
The Saffron risotto and local red wine were both excellent.
