Assissi to PoggioleoneMay 22 in Italy
Assissi is the prettiest town we have seen so far. It is medieval but as lots of tourists go there it is very well maintained. Lots of quaint shops. Stefano wanted to buy his monk a pair of leather sandals. People go to Assissi to pay homage to St Francis, the patron saint of animals and the environment, so I think he must have been a good guy.
The highlight of our day, by far, was when Stefano decided it would be a good idea to stand Ernie on the wall above the fountain. That was mistake number one. Mistake number two was to turn his back. There was a splash and a scream and one wet Ernie. Ernie was crying but we couldn’t help ourselves and were in stitches. We are horrible people.
Back into the car for some more mad Italian driving and off to Poggioleone for the night, which is on the border of Umbria and Tuscany. Once again the rain set in so off to a wine bar to wait for it to stop, which it didn’t. We had a wet Ernie for the second time today.
