After our wonderful lunch (pasta marinara and calamari friti) we decided to take the bus back to town as the wind had come up. It wasn't until I got off the bus back in Trieste that I suddenly noticed my purse wasn't with me anymore.
This entailed another trip back to Muggia on the bus and a step-by-step retracing of where we had been. We checked everywhere but sadly the purse was not to be found. Then we took the bus back to the central station to see if it was in the lost-and-found but it's not open now until Monday morning. This was a kind of sad ending to a nice day as I had purchased this lovely green leather shoulder bag in Venice and it seems that is it gone for good. Perhaps I left it somewhere or perhaps someone cut the strap on the bus. In any case it's gone. Fortunately there wasn't much in the bag except for a few coins and one credit card which I have now cancelled.
