Sarteano Day 5

Normal service has been resumed. It's 31 degrees and sunny today and the site is buzzing with people round the pool and the village. What a relief, especially to Caroline and Kate. We had a great time playing in the big pool which is one of three, the other two are open to the public and stay open all day. The one we use closes at 1.30 which allows time for a siesta! Life is hard!!
In the evening we visited the nearby town of Cetona. This very traditional Italian town has it's focal point in a large rectangular square were the locals meet and talk of an evening. It really is wonderful to hear the human voice as the main source noise and animation. If only we could adopt this back home rather than the usual television and loud music. We have sat in this square eating ice-cream, drinking coffee and talking. Feeling quite at home really
