|Fabulous cakes at Chieli bakery in Sansepolcro|
|Pete Danilo (Villa Violetta neighbour) and Roberto - wine and prosciutto!|
So…our lovely friends Roberto, Jaz and Niki have left us. They are off to pastures new in the UK, for a week or so. And we have possession of the Villa Violetta!
I chopped and Pete is cooking. It will not be up to Roberto’s standard…nobody’s cooking is…but it will be delicious. Full of Tuscan veggies and a bit of prosciutto!
We have hired a nifty little Fiat Panda for a few days.
And we have zipped from Place Of Beauty to Place Of Beauty!
Every hilltop in the region is topped with a glorious little walled city.
Can’t say which is more beautiful
Yesterday we went to Arezzo with Roberto. It was about 42 degrees, with a hot HOT wind blowing through the town. We are just slightly used to horrendous heat. Mad dogs and Englishmen… so we managed ok, up hill and down dale.
|Huge fabulous Arezzo church|
With a fabulous majestic church.
Today we have driven around the countryside, walking up and down steps in each and every glorious hill town.
I took photos of doors, of course.
Including a photo of me in my new Italian market dress, in a doorway…
But I told Jaz about our passion for doors and she said she has a friend who takes photos of manhole covers. Yes I KNOW! Not the right terminology in today’s world! Is it a personhole cover?? What??
Anyway…I have started!!
The amazing thing about our adventures today is…each and every town was shut down.
Nobody around! Not even mad dogs and Englishmen.
