...but every day this week has been so hectic! And with no Internet connection in the rental, it has been hard to connect!
I have plenty of stories, lots of photos to download and share -- when I have a better connection.
But things have been going really well. Today was the first day we had much rain, and I hid out in a great restaurant in Arezzo, under a portico, after an hour viewing Piero della Francesca's Legend of the True Cross fresco cycle. So beautiful! (My traveling companion had headed off to the Geox store and missed everything -- his loss.)
Yesterday, we spent the day on the other side of the Mountains of the Moon (seriously -- that is the name of the range we crossed) in the city of Urbino. What a beautiful, Renaissance city! And we had coffee with Giulia, whose family home is near the Palazzo Ducale. A great day.
It has been so late when we've returned home the last two nights that Philippe and I have made simple salads and pasta for dinner, and stuffed our faces in the TV room watching Helen Mirren in the British series Prime Suspect (which our landlords have thoughtfully made available on DVD.) I feel as if I should be out enjoying Italy every possible minute, but sometimes when I'm worn out from a full day I confess that eating fresh pasta on a sofa in an old T-shirt feels just right!
