Here are the first views of the lower pool and with a really acute imagination you can imagine the waterfall from the pool above to the lower one.
Bacco is self sufficient and drinks freely from the community water fountains. He must weigh about 33 kg by now.
The days are full of hoeing and cleaning, placing mulch around our plants and finishing up the vegetable garden and the flowers.
I am excited to welcome our 1st Kansas Citians Monday and all is ready, I think.
We are going to continue our big room sale until the pool is finished at just 60 euros a night, so plan your trip in a hurry.
A travel tip I use for hotels and flights is the travelbot, bookingbuddy.com which takes you into about 30 different search engines to find the cheapest prices. Venere.com works well for hotels in Italy, especially Rome. Kayak is usually, but not always the cheapest for flights and both are inside booking buddy.
Slow Food had a nice dinner to benefit native South Americans, who will be travelling to terra madre (the presidi products and lectures at Salone del Gusto- see slowfood.com), at a Grottammare restaurant called Frangipane. I will add it to our list of recommended restaurants. Very cute and all hand picked or hand made products with a limited but nice wine list.
When I get caught up on the hoeing, I will start translating the posts Raffaele has placed on the Nascondiglio blog which are much more complete and educational than mine!
