Off to Amelia - will blog later

As it's a beautiful morning we're off in the car to the town of Amelia which is about an hour away. Amelia must be where Italian chocoholics go to live - there are three cafes or shops that stock the widest range of chocolate I've ever seen. Apart from the chocolate Amelia has some of the best preserved Etruscan era walls in Italy - they have survived the last 3000 years largely intact. It also has one of those small local museums that no one ever seems to visit, which is a shame as it has a twice life size statue of a roman emperor that has been lvingly and painstakingly reconstructed. I'll try to get some pictures on the camera phone and blog later.
