Today we say goodbye to Cerveteri, its doors and Flavia. This late August trip last year was our last getaway.
As you can tell, I miss outings like this and then don’t go anywhere. It’s still a bit chilly, but it’s not that. My feet are hurting but it’s not (only) that either. I’m in need of some company. That’s why I’m extra glad when you come over.
This is the second and last post from Cerveteri, a town between my home in southern Tuscany and Rome. There are many towns in between but when amore drives us to Rome and back we never stop. Similarly, when we drive to Slovenia, all 7 or 8 hours of it, we never play tourists but rush along the highways to reach our destination. Last year it was brilliant when amore had to stop for an online meeting and my visitors from Oregon got to see Padua, and I too, for the first time.
So this was my only visit to Cerveteri for now. We start in the square when we stopped the last time. It’s 4 pm, the town is getting ready for a wine and grape festival but we will leave before it starts, and who knows when we meet again.
