      Last day before I head home. Second lazy day. We have a late breakfast and then head out for a walk to the local shops to buy supplies for lunch; pane, formaggio and prosciutto. I go for a walk around the village, the first time I've done this this week. There are horses grazing around the village, the sun is out and it is lunchtime so there is no one else walking ...

      ... over the mountains, in the dark. I feel sorry for Gilberto as I'm not much company in the car. As soon as it gets dark, I seem to fall asleep in the car! He wakes me for a moment so I can see the lovely deer on the side of the road as we drive by. Home by 9.30pm and then I cook dinner for us- fish!

We will have a pretty early start as the main road is blocked by a landslide from the rain last week, so we have to take a different road which will take a bit longer. Might have time to get a pretzel as well ...

      ... August and September of 1944 the Allies took control of the area which saw the retreat of the Germans. It is a beautiful village, lovely stone walls and a couple of friendly cats! We have a cuppa and a chat with one of the locals. He points out a town on the next hill, Tavuillia, and tells us that it is the birthplace of Valentino Rossi. We drive through it a bit later on our way to the walled castle town of Gradara. Tavuillia is decked out in yellow banners ...

      ... choices. The food is very good and I have a selection of cheese and cured meat (the prosciutto is delicious) and then some pasta. The others all have dessert as well, a selection of 4 desserts on the one plate, all linked by raspberry jam/sauce. It looks delicious, but I resist the urge as most of the desserts on the plate are ice creams! So my Italian lessons are now put to the test: can I understand enough to know what some of the conversation is about? ...
