Eloise is hiding something under her card
Eloise and Madeline
Madeline is Eloise's neighbor
They are good friends Eloise bakes datenut bread for Madeline-it's her favorite!
They are visiting a beautiful hotel in Lake Como, Italia in May of last year.
I heard the hum of cicatas and a fountain trickeling. Old, plump Italian Grandmas dressed in black are seated with us. they are shuffling cards. There is almond biscotti and strog, thick sweet expresso. Eloise reveals a gold coin under her card stack. They often eat Biscotti or date nut bread and play cards
