Heaven

Actually: Poreta Umbria, Italy

Umbria was even more than I had imagined. Every direction you look is another National Geographic view. I loved my little stone cottage in the mountains.

My friend Jody McKinney joined me for a couple of days. We took one very long drive down, down into the canyon of the Nera River to the town of Norcia where we:
Ate the worst meal in Italy
Shopped at the cutest cured meat shop (Norcia's speciality in addition to the black truffle)
Bought 5 kilos of potatoes from a roadside vendor - don't ask me why!
Saw the end of the Italian "Tea Party" local convention

We also toured the Umbrian hills around Todi where the roads had so many twists and turns that Jody was slightly car sick.
