Trieste gets more interesting by the day.

A couple of postings from the Il Piccolo website of today Friday 6 October.

Record seizure of 'Cocaine' on a yacht flying the Triestine flag. The yacht has been registered in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region where investigations are proceeding. The drug - €20 million estimated value - is the biggest ever seizure of stupefascients in Portugal, and was discovered by the Portugese authorities in a yacht to the south of the Azorres.

Also very interesting is this posting:
