My window at Hotel Potra San Mamolo looks out on the quiet, peaceful courtyard. I recently painted this scene, but it is even better in person!
It is a beautiful Sunday morning with the chirping of a bird and church bells ringing
around the city. I got a great night's sleep and was up at 6:00, showered, and having my coffee al fresco at 7 a.m..
Yes, the staff learned I can drink three pots without floating away!
Then I went for a walk. An hour later, I was back at my favorite cafe in Piazza de' Celestini. I spoke to Brad, and set a time to meet with the owner of my apartment. I am now remembered at the cafe: "Caffe latte in un bicchiere grande".
The i-phone is to read my book, and the other is my Italian cell. Do I look Italian yet?
I am excited about moving in to my apartment this afternoon. The friendly staff will store my bags after I check out, until the owner of my apartment picks me and my luggage up at 5. That means I am "homeless" for a few hours, but I won't have to schlep my stuff over in a taxi! I have a long walk and a nice pranzo planned.
Ciao for now. My next post will be from the wifi in my apartment!
