On the Street Where I Live

Being welcomed to Rome by Leonardo
I have been in Spello for about 36 hours and already I feel like I'm home. The tiny apartment is cozy, and just right for me.  In two weeks I will move next door to a larger apartment with two bedrooms and a larger living area.  It also has a balcony which I look forward to.

 Spello is known as the city of flowers, since they have a flower festival every year on the feast of Corpus Domini, this year on the weekend of June 1.  Every home has a display of flowers and I plan to go to the garden center this weekend and find some plants for our apartment.  This is the
passageway from our apartment to the main street.

It was a gorgeous day today, in the mid 70's but there was no one around. 

would love to have a chance to restore an old ruin like this!

Most bars will not sell you a cappucino after 10 a.m.---Enoteca Properzio serves all day long!

Santa Maria Maggiore--I'm headed home

Every day here is different, different friends to make, and new language to learn.  I'm in my sweet spot, and that is a lot for an introvert to say!  Wishing you a bella notte from Spello.
