Castiglioncello to Perugia




Today has been very entertaining. We had a leisure ride through some beautiful farming country on the way to see Amanda Knox. Our lunch stop was a self-contained family farm that reminds me of a plantation-like operation, where everyone that works there, lives there. Our Hotel in Perugia couldn't be any better, stationed right in the middle of the oldest part of town. Steve was a great sport in following me around the maze of old and small streets while taking several attempts at hitting the mark.

Many small communities between point A and B, and always old.

Sometimes there's traffic, lots of traffic.
On the outskirts of Sienna, we found this farm operation with a Ristorante.
So, we took the small gravel road next to the vineyard.
We find this at the end of the road. (Hotel Borgo Antico)

I had beef, chicken, lamb and pork on their mix meat plate.
No worries, I'm protected

Ok, made it downtown Perugia. However, this street seems funny?
Oh, I guess it is a deadend?
Ok, we'll just back-up. (Steve likes a good adventure too, thank goodness.)

Steve, Paula, Joy and Armando reunited after a couple of days waiting on repairs. We're back together and walking to dinner.
