Many thanks to the residents of the villages of Spelo and Bavagna who last night put on a classical music concert, a pop concert, a roman fancy dress show and a fireworks display all in honour of England winning the Ashes, or it might just have been happy coincidence.

It was wonderful to be able to sit out at midnight in the market square drinking beer and wine and grappa (and for anyone who hasn't tried Grappa, just syphon a little unleaded petrol from your car's tank and have a swig) and eating ice cream.

Ilka is hungover this morning, Mum claims she isn't, I walked my hangover off by taking the dog for a walk. We're off to Assisi now, then more beer/vino/pasta/pasta etc.
