Here is Rosa at her home with Fatia.
Went over early in the morning to pick up my friend staying at Rosa's house.
Then, Clare and I went up to the center of Perugia for breakfast!
And Clare presented me with a wonderful green expresso coffee maker for my studio! A little package with chocolates inside and lovely postcard.
One of the most magnificent places to have breakfast, or a drink or a full meal, is right at the top of the mini metro with an amazing view.
Then, I just had to go to my little studio, right in the center of Perugia.
My dear friend Gheslaine showed up, presenting me with a lovely rose.
I started a tiny oil painting, just to celebrate my birthday (the very beginning of it, many changes surely to come soon).
Then, I walked out onto the main street of town to take the mini metro home.
My daughter made lunch for me, and an original dessert.
At about 5pm my girls and I took one of the scenic stairways into the center of town.

Beautiful weather, a bit windy and sunny.
Then, we went to the wonderful photography/sculpture show of my good friend Rita Taticchi, being held in the Rocca Paolina. The theme of the show is on the stairways of Perugia. A very interesting show, of the many wonderful stairs there are throughout the city. Her sculptures too are on this theme, very original and delightful pieces.
Here I am in the fascinating Rocca Paolina right outside of my friend's show.
The day continued with photos of the lake.....to be continued on the next post
