Friday April 15
This morning I slept in and packed a box to ship back home, then took a walk down the scale mobili to the post office. The post office in Italy is a process to say the least.
First you have to take a number, and depending on what your business is there, the numbers are categorized in three different areas. Once it is your turn, you turn in your box along with two documentation forms which must itemize each thing in the box, its value and approximate weight. It is not acceptable to simply list gifts, or clothes. Anyway, after about 30 minutes or so, I left the post office, mission accomplished.
On the walk back I found a supermercato, and was happy to be able to buy Coca Light and some other things there, much less expensive than at any other shops. I sat in a little park and did some writing, enjoying the cool breeze and sun…no rain.
I had a late lunch, but before 3:30, because after that you cannot find anything open until 7:30 except a bar which serves minimal items. Then I took the rest of the day and relaxed. Tomorrow I am taking the train to Orvieto, another medieval hilltop little town. Ciao!
