A couple of taste treats - last night Emily made an excellent carbonara with pancetta and mushrooms. I love this recipe. At Montesenario there is a fountain, and the water is simply great. I give that my second taste treat of the day. I am enjoying the remainder of the water from that fountain as I write this. Italian phrase of the day - fontana de aqua - water fountain. A very useful phrase, as most towns have good water at a public fountain, and if you ask - Dov e la fontana de aqua - most villagers will direct you to the water. No need to carry more than one bottle.

The views were wonderful on the climb to Montesenario, so
I managed a couple of pictures while climbing. This is to the West.
The ride's objective on the hill ahead, the sanctuary at Montesenario,
a still active monastery, and a great climb on a bike.
Almost there, the sanctuary is just ahead.
Rows of hills, which describes the landscape here in the
distance with the bike and cross in the foreground.
My idea of an artistic photo.
Another picture of the hills and valleys from Montesenario,
a slightly different location for the picture.
