The view towards Todi from the house this morning

There is something about the Italian landscape that appeals to the northern soul. Scotland is beautiful but in an Alaskan-Norwegian-elemental way. Here, the evidence of continuous cultivation and habitation gives the land a softness and sensuality that can't be found anywhere else. This is the view across the fields towards Todi at six this morning. The local villagers think that we are terribly isolated being all of 2 kilometres from the nearest tarmaced road. We on the other hand coming from Scotland think that we're in the middle of it all.The joys of cultural differences!
