... had to step aside for a while to let them pass on so we could hear ourselves think.
We got back to the car, where there was no parking ticket! I won’t lie, I was kind of nervous. We found our way out to the autostrada, and headed up to Florence. We hit some evening traffic, but it wasn’t all that bad, and after only a couple of missed navigational queues (I miss Utah’s grid system!), we pulled up to the Machiavelli Palace ...

Lachlan was still only just on the mend by Saturday, so we continued to find things to do in Spoleto. This included a trip to the Archeological Museum and an exploration of the attached Roman theatre.

We had a lovely week and a half hanging out here. In Rome it was about the sites and history. In Orvieto it has been about the people and slowing down. We met really wonderful people here and that made Orvieto feel more like home.
First of all, Susan from Santa Barbara shared her home with us. Then, Victoria took us all around and introduced us to all her Italian friends ...
... kind of beautiful Orvieto lace. It was a wonderful morning and we enjoyed eating the fruits of our labor!
Later in the afternoon, we headed out to the countryside and visited Victoria's house in the next town over. It is situated on a hill overlooking Orvieto to one side and the beautiful Umbrian hills and valleys to the other. We walked among the vineyards and enjoyed seeing the signs of spring along the road.
