Day 80 Bolsena to Montefiascone:
Coming into Montefiascone there are tributes to a famous local wine Est! Est! Est! Supposedly a 12th Century German Bishop sent his prelate( wine scout) ahead to mark “Est” ( Latin for “there is” on doors with acceptable wine. The prelate liking the local wine here wrote Est! Est! Est! We of course had a bottle at lunch. Mika liked it more than me but I am a red man.🍷
An Egyptian nun who threw our keys to us.
But dinner was served by the ultra friendly Sister María Magdalena from Cuenca, Ecuador. One of those few people in a constant state of joy. At dinner time, she signalled me to come in and I was going to go upstairs to get Mika and she told me to wait and she started ringing a big bell furiously with a grin on her face. Then she walked to the stairs and sang out, “pelllliiiigrniiiiiiiiiii”. Can’t get her song out of my head now!😂
