Paradise….

Last night just as dusk was descending we lit the stove in the sauna here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House, and from the warmth of the cabin watched the sun go down and the evening commence.

This morning the sun was up bright and early, and it has been a truly wonderful day.  Not a cloud in the sky, a few songbirds and the occasional light plane overhead, otherwise utter peace and stillness.  I took the chance to steal a couple of hours and lay on a rug in the garden in a pair of shorts and relaxed with a good book.  Now I am sitting in the garden squinting into my computer screen to post this blog, it is still warm enough to be without a t shirt, utterly perfect…

This evening we are heading off to Perugia to hear a quartet concert in the delightful elegance of the Sala dei Notari.  The concert is part of the winter season of classical concerts held in Perugia.  Afterwards there will be dinner with friends in the Rossetta, a traditional hotel restaurant, an altogether elegant evening is about to unfold..
