... As we climbed and left the coast behind us, the road became less difficult, less bends and even I was able to glance the vegetation either side. This is autumn in these parts and chestnut trees were everywhere. Showing their autumn colours and gently shedding their leaves in the gentle breeze, it was just a picture.
We drove thru a small village where we picked up sign posting for A1. We knew we were on track. Then we reached the summit and there ...
... the festival began, but it was not very "happy" for obvious reasons. There were a bunch of people dressed in medieval costumes and everyone in the town was very kind to us. I had pizza frita, which is a big pita bread with salt. I have been going to a salsa dancing place recently, which is really fun. I enjoy it more than Two Stepping because I actually enjoy the music being played.
... The fried rice, only lightly fried, not brown, with only egg, peas and prawns added...no shallots, no bacon. It was a different taste than the fried rice at home. We finished with a Chinese tea which cleansed the palate and left our stomachs and our taste buds, very satisfied.
We then, parcelled up, descended the Funicolare to our parked Fiat for the hour and hour trip home.
It was another great, memorable day out.

A Big Day in Panicale....for two reasons!
Firstly, I visited Mara, the ladies hairdresser in the piazza. Thought I wanted regrowth and trim?
Picture shows new Sue back in the piazza enjoying morning coffee. I put it down to "lost in translation", ah, it's Italy!
I must say it was definitely the "quietest" visit to a ladies hairdresser I have ever experienced.
Mara speaks no English ...
Montepulciano offers tons of artistic, cultural and tourist events besides "New Moon."
But then you have this souvenir shop which was a bust for "Twilight" stuff. Another one of those situations -- Trim Castle, Forli and Sound of Music in Salzburg -- where they have an untapped gold mine among the most traveled people on the planet, Americans, and they seem to be ignoring it. Or maybe it's just my American ethnocentrism.
