SO i had a few days out of action- a bad neck ( a sharp turn led to barely being able to move it for several days) and an exhausting case of the flu kept me pretty close to home.
I whiled away the time learning Italian verbs, sleeping, catching up on the blog posts (they don’t write themselves and that 3 part series on the contrada”s took a fair whack of time!) and other bits and pieces like cooking 🙂
And it so happened that the days i needed to rest, nature did it’s best to make me feel as i wasn’t missing too much as it POURED with rain on and off
until finally on Friday, despite the continuous rain i mustered the energy to head into town to see the duomo – but im afraid that needs a post of it’s own!
