One of the boat boys came back from Capri the other day with an unlikely tale about a floating pink car driving through the waves.
"It was a Maserati, I swear!" He brandished his mobile phone in front of us to show us the photo that he had taken. Sure enough there was a picture of a car in the middle of the sea.
Of course, eventually it arrived here too so I went to find out what was going on.
In 1999 two Italian guys crossed the Atlantic from the Canaries to Martinique. It took them 119 daqys and their chosen mode of transport was a Ford Taunus and a VW Passat padded out with polyeurathane.
Now one of them is attempting to drive/float his way around Italy in a pink Maserati. He arrived last night and was offered dinner by a local restaurant and a place to sleep for the night in a fishermans cabin on the beach. This morning he left, headed southwards aiming to arrive in Calabria. I wonder if any other bloggers will spot him as he passes through?
