Pumpkin Soup

a weblog with an allotment attached

25 July 2006

Ciao ragazzi!

Back again! Since I wrote last we have cycled ridiculously huge distances (around 25km yesterday in stupid heat); we’ve sweated gallons (most of it during our cycle trip yesterday!); we got a bit sunburnt (in spite of lashings of factor 25 sun cream); we’ve visited a 7,000 year old frozen corpse called Otzi; been taken by our host, Giuseppe, to a festa at an amazing castle at the top of a little mountain where there was bizarre stilt entertainment with burning swords and Death with a burning scythe; we’ve eaten obscene amounts of gelato; we’ve written and posted postcards to our friends and family (including two to ourselves!); we’ve read books, loads of books, novels – not a text book among them; we’ve even done two loads of laundry (necessary when you’ve been sweating as much as we have); we’ve celebrated 36 years of me being alive (my birthday was on Sunday); and generally had an utterly fabulous time.

We leave Mattarello on Thursday and fly home on Friday to bills, a no-doubt sulky cat and an overgrown allotment. Che peccato!

    Happy birthday for last Sunday! V. jealous you’ve been in Italy, it’s such a wonderful country and I’d love to go back there again. My sister used to live in Siena and I’d stay from time to time and it’s just the best place.
