Each day we have been treated to trips to villages steeped in history with stunning wines and the most simplest and tastiest cuisine. With Jen's three sisters, we have two other women and a guy on the ...
... were large holes everywhere in the stone and apparently this is where people had dug into it to retrieve anything of value. It's very interesting and kind of weird to look out at the massive structure and think of all the terrible things that would have happened there - how many 'gladiators' were killed and animals slaughtered. I would be interested to know a bit more about the history of it all. Next stop was lunch and I was bracing myself for a beautiful and carbohydrate loaded bowl ...
