To market, to market to buy a fat pig. Wow, up, up and away. Not as much here locally, that was due to a weakening Euro relative to the Rand, Dollar strength and that led to general emerging market strength.

Our Italian is sadly confined to eating Americanised Italian food, the original pizzas do not have cheese on them, they were made for poor people, flatbreads.
