Ronaldo on top again
Cristiano Ronaldo’s two goals for Juventus in the 3-3 draw against Parma, took his tally for the season to seventeen as the Madeiran became Italy’s Serie A leading goal scorer. Ronaldo’s side are now the only unbeaten team in Europe’s top five leagues, having won nineteen of their twenty-two league games, while drawing the other three.
The Mirror reports that the Juventus star’s mum Dolores Aveiro, 64, is “fighting for her life” after a new cancer drama. She had a lump removed in 2007 but has now admitted she is undergoing radiotherapy to beat the disease. The mum-of-four is reported to have travelled to Italy yesterday to celebrate her footballer son’s 34th birthday after backing him in his fight against rape claims.
New Cafe Concerto two-tier pricing
Just noted a comment added to a previous post about the cafe that was formerly the excellent “Cafe Concerto” in the Municipal Gardens in the middle of Funchal.
I visited the cafe today and as expected was ripped off.. 2 coffees cost 5.50 euros. I challenged them and asked what the locals pay. They looked a bit flustered and eventually admitted that the locals pay 1.30 for a coffee, but of course they are standing at the counter to drink it. This was absolute rubbish… Not one single local was standing at the counter. They have two settings on their cash register one for tourists and one for locals.. To keep it legal they pretend that the locals are standing up at the counter drinking their coffee, etc. I should have written about this experience in the complaints book.. we really need to stand up to these corrupt establishments.
