Saturday was another gorgeous day – started getting hot by 9 or so.  I swept the outside stairs and the terrace from all the dust caused by the air-con installation, then spread out the yoga mat for another nice stretch.

After lunch we took a walk around the old part of the town – it’s quite high on a hill so has sweeping views of the whole valley below, including Foligno to the north and Montefalco to the west.

 It was lovely to walk around and everywhere I looked there was another thing of beauty or interest, whether it was a painting, a flower pot or a door-knocker, or simply the lane itself.

Back in Papiano again when we were walking from the campervan to the house I noticed what I thought was a dead bird in the middle of the lane – but it was actually still alive.  I told a fellow down the way about it and that is wasn’t dead yet and he said ‘oh well – that’s life – or I guess that’s death’. We had left-over meat-loaf for dinner followed by our daily trip down to Poppy’s for a nightcap.  On the way back I saw that the bird (a lark) had flapped and flopped its way down to the small piazza/parking area near the house so I tried to help it – I picked it up with two hands (and got bitten on the finger) and lifted it into a nearby plant in a large pot.  Maybe it’ll survive and maybe not – as the man earlier said….238B4975-3FA2-48F7-9355-3AE8B231CA51
