Is a rather scruffy town masquerading as chic….2 town gates do not make one stunning. It is basically an agricultural service town, think Ashburton with a few historical bits.
Best thing today, well 2 good things but the first one was a helicopter shifting those large round hay bales. Took a few passes before I realised what the busy helicopter was doing.
Second good thing, six much more subdued boys, now in two groups and no rosary chanting.
Also, no geckos today but the road edges are pretty awful here, sprayed and chopped. Saw three BIG frogs.
A few kilometres of the via Cassia, best condition of any of the bits of Roman Road I have seen. Guess because it was part of the Firenze to Roma route meant it was the M1 of its time. Damn hard to walk on though.
Still getting barked at by slathering beasts behind fences. A little dog walked past me today totally oblivious to my presence, I reminded him I was there and honestly he stopped gave a snarling bark then walked on, all of 30 cm high….
Went down from 600 plus in Montefiascone, got lost getting out, to about 200, where apart from a little climb round the base of Mt Jugo was about it apart from a stagger uphill in town hunting my hotel. 25ks again and I swear five of it is hotel hunting. Hotel called Hotel Mini Palace, a 1970’s architectural delight. But I have a bath and got it for free!!!!!
Probably all in my head as the end approaches but each day seems harder…
Nobody got the tree naming prize, it is a Tiglio.
