... us looking for presents. Crossbows, swords and pictures or statues of St Frank abound. I hope I can get them all through customs in Australia.

Well, the blunt end of the trip....our last four days we are spending in Umbria. Specifically, Spello,which is an ancient town and commune of Italy, in the province of Perugia in east central Umbria. It is a medieval town, completed walled, and very steep. Absolutely stunning it is. We stayed in Casa Spello which is a renovated Monastery, much to Paul's delight as he has always wanted a 'cave'.
