AFTER PC609d Tue - Ovieto with Vilma

Tues - come to Viterbo
- Vilma was going up to Venice & we'd meet up agin when she came back in 5 days The plan had been to bring Vilma to visit Sutri & Viterbo & meet up with CSers Valentina & Guiseppe for dinner before she took the train to Venice . But then on Tuesday morning we found that Viterbo is not on the main trainline so transport was getting complicated. We would have had to take a metro to a suburban station, take the train & switch to a bus and the same to get back. So stubborn Vilma said no. So we spent the day in Rome and then I alone went up to Viterbo after 5pm
- Actually the jouney was fast, it took me less than 95 minutes in all. So I met up with Valentina, Guiseppe and Enzio at the bookshop cafe for a chat.

- Great hospitality from Valentina & Guiseppe. Since I had 5 days to kill Valentina came up with the idea that I should walk to some of the old Etruscan sites starting with a track from Blera, where she teaches to Babarano Romano.

Wed - Blera & Via Clodia
- Blera sits highup on a valley with a new bridge crossing the top of the valley. There was a lavatorio so I washed my clothes there. Wow I saw 2 Italians walking, that's very unusual I chatted to them and found they came from Udine in the Northeast mountains of Italy. Most of the time I met Italians walking they came from Udine I guess it has a different culture from the rest of Italy.
