Days 82-83: Viterbo to Vetralla to Sutri.
Interesting couple of days as we grow ever near to the Vatican.
How different this last 100K is to the Camino de Santiago where at times you can see 100 or more other pilgrims. Here it has gotten quiet and we are basking in the silence.
We have not seen another pilgrim since young Marco in Viterbo.
Walking past thousands of hazelnut trees has me wondering if my Nutella’s hazelnuts come from here.🤔
From Vetrella to Sutri was even quieter as we only passed through one town, Capranica, where we bumped into friendly Uberta, a retired English teacher with an architect son living in London, 4 dogs, a garden, and some Swedish neighbors. She wanted to chat and we listened. She noticed Mika’s torn shirt and offered her a new one.
The walk from Capranica to Sutri was through a beautiful hilly dense forest often along a creek with not another soul around making it hard to believe we are so close to Rome.
Sutri is one more beautiful hilltop small town.
My desire to get this over with is turning into melancholy and a desire to keep going.😊🙏👣
