    ... The hunter has to be quick or else the dog will eat the truffle. It was interesting to watch the dogs and hunter at work and we found 3 white truffles which have a strong garlic aroma. To be a truffle hunter you must be licenced by the govt and it takes a number of years to train the dogs. Back at the hunters home we tasted shaved white truffle on cheese. White truffles are rarer and therefore cost more. The day ended with our picnic dinner at our agriturismo. Sunday Oct 12 First ...

    ... people on our trip who enjoy the drink they certainly thought it was good. The company uses the freshest pomace from White and red grapes.

Our guide took us on a tour of this small town visiting the Baroque churches of St ...

    Rain and Tunnels

    ... you that I don't like tunnels. Not the little rocky French ones, I mean the long, smelly burrows that go for miles in places under the alps and are usually full of aggressive Italian drivers.

    But I'm not complaining about them today. Driving past Genoa on the autostrada one goes through maybe a hundred tunnels. Every one is a respite from the driving rain and the chance to sit up straight ...
