– 131 – postcards from Tuscany

Sunday’s ritual.

Drive down to the nearest village, Pieve Santo Stefano, built around a very small river Tiber, the one that flows through Rome.  It’s been an incredibly dry summer so the water level here is super low.

then a trip to the local bar , ‘Bar Sport’  (classic name,  there must be thousands all over the country with this name), across the square from the church.  Nowhere else the sacred and the profane are as intertwined as in Italy

for a classic aperitif.  Campari for me and dad… Crodino bianco for mum and brother.

I am definitively ‘home’.

Cheers.
