After several days of soaking rain, yesterday dawned with bright blue skies, dotted with beautiful cloud formations. I hadn't been to Assisi, and wanted to see my friend Franca, who owns the restaurant, La Fontanella,. Assisi can seem like Disneyland some days, with hordes of tourists shoved into the town from 40+ passenger diesel spewing buses, but Saturday seemed quite calm, as you can see from the photos.
La Fontanella once again.
|Franca's Secret Garden|
|Although the view from here is spectacular, it's the food that is the prize|
Although any normal person would have stopped there, I of course had to have another course, and I got a bit of delicious Chiannina beef with salad. I couldn't finish all the beef, but Franca's new dog Argo helped me out.
|Grazie Franca, for the beautiful time in your garden!|
|As I drove home to Spello I saw 5 para-gliders that had taken off from Mt. Subasio; just another day in Umbria. Buona Sera!|
