    Woke at 7am to our church bells but had a quiet start as we did not have to meet till 10am. Blue skies and warm.

    ... was also wonderful with two of the best pastas I have ever tasted. While we were there, a man walked in with trays of fresh Porcini mushrooms that he had just picked. They were on one of our pastas. Some then shared a plate of baked mushrooms that were like small pieces of meat.

At the end of the war, he tried to walk out amongst the retreating German soldiers but he was recognised by his big chin, captured by the Partisans and shot within a five minute period. His body was later displayed ...

    ... It was very interesting through beautiful valleys with villages on hilltops. The road would have cost a fortune to build as it was mostly through tunnels or over bridges. We stopped for lunch at a truck stop type place and ate panini we had bought in a gorgeous little deli in Sorrento. The weather remains warm and sunny, 25 degrees most days.
