Owing to the unforeseen delay we rapidly tracked down bus no. 3, which of course departed from a different bus station to the one we had been dropped at...so, a swift taxi ride later (and an argument over the price...in my best Italian) and we made it to the bus terminal just in time to catch the last bus
This morning we started our day with the first hot shower we've had since leaving England, which as you can imagine has done wonders for morale, that and the sun is most definitely shining, and it's hot (the result of which is Kate's face and my feet are already starting to look like Rudolf's nose) but never fear...we Brits abroad will push on regardless in the quest for that perfect tan!
Barichara really is a picture postcard town, which you'll be able to see from the (MANY) pictures we have taken today (but less so on bin day which unfortunately today was...not great for the photographer). That said, Kate insisted on taking a picture of EVERY doorway and EVERY shutter window, (I think blue is blue but it turns out there are many variations of the colour blue...and we must photograph them all) turning a 10 minutes walk in search of breakfast into a 3 hour walk in search of lunch (hence the sun burn).
That said, we stumbled across a viewing spot over from the top of the town overlooking the valley and mountains which for me was reminiscent of the views in Africa...truly magnificent. I insisted we probably stay there rather longer than we should...again in the blistering sun...but that was why I needed to eat the 5 ice creams...Perfect!
