Starting out, view from the window and greetings.
2. We realise that there is no way of arranging our table so the high chair is not in the waitresses' way, so we move across the room. Alec immediately starts up with great excitement: "Toot! Toot-toot!" Through the open window he can see the little train that took his fancy in the amusement park.
3. As we pass the open back door of a laundry, someone shouts to us "Hallo". "
We call back, and then someone else said "Buongiorno."
As we pass, I hear someone with a strong accent say: "What beautiful language. In English?".
And a chorus of rainbow-coloured "Awright mates" follows us down the alley.
