We also saw a little scooter loaded down with about 36 one-liter bottles of water. It was so silly that we had to take a quick picture.
|This was the scooter. It had a double load of water in the front.|
The road we took back home looks like a busy, winding road on the map of Todi. It's called "Via della Serpentina" -- and is actually a woodland path. However, there are what appear to be road signs at the bottom of it. Do they really expect people to drive up it? From our experience here, anything's possible.
The biodegradable bags they use here are not tremendously strong, and they minimize their use. However, the kids forgot their backpacks today, and we had to use a few. Well, we had a blowout, so Ashley decided to put the milk in her pockets...
|Ashley the silly milkmaid|
Jeremy, meanwhile, went out to a dinner for the altar servers. He said he had a pretty good time, even though he didn't understand a lot of what was being said. But he understood some of it! Hurray!
And now? Bed.
|The glimpses are just magical to me|
|A common pose for Jeremy -- he's always taking photos!|
|The poppies are blooming!|
|The medieval wall|
|Sta. Maria della Consolazione|
|Via della Serpentina|
|It doubles back on itself. And is steep in places.|
|We also have lilacs in bloom...|
|We'll miss the steps!|
|They go up and up and up!|
