And now, a deep breath, we are in Italy.

That is how it feels. We have been going, going, going. Wanting to see as much of Budapest and as much of the country of Montenegro as we could. After all, we weren't sure if we would ever return.

But, now we are at Montemigiano. (The third picture in our header photo above.)

We are settled in. We are home. We have no need to rush around and take in the sights. We know we will be back many more times.

We arrived at Ancona by ferry from Bar. Picked up our rental car and drove straight to Umbertide.

We made a quick inventory of the provisions and then a shopping list. Ran to the store, came home and put the groceries away before jumping in the pool.

There was a Swedish family in the house upstairs. He is a conductor with an orchestra. Their daughter is an opera singer and has just been accepted to a major conservatory. To thank the owner of the house for its use, they held a recital and dinner party. They invited everyone in residence.

A very pleasant welcome for our first night, don't you think. The food was great, the company was so nice...and the music was wonderful! This young lady has a very bright future. I think we will be hearing from her on an international level some day.

Next time I come to the internet cafe, I will try to upload some pictures into this boring words-only blog.

I'm not bored in the least, photos or not! I'm really enjoying this vicarious traveling with you. Have fun, Annie

Deborah responds: Grazie! Annie. Today is market day in Umbertide, so of course we had to come down from our beautiful hilltop for the Porchetta truck!

You said porchetta truck? I'm drooling!
