Welcome to my blog, I am happy to have you here and hope you will call by often for a little taster of Italian life as we live it.
I would very much appreciate it if you would please leave a comment somewhere here, even if it is only to say Hello!
I enjoy hearing from friends old and new and your comments make my day.

Foligno is an ancient town of Italy in the province of Perugia in east central Umbria, on the Topino river where it leaves the Apennines and enters the wide plain of the Clitunnoriver system. It is located 40 km (25 mi) south-east of Perugia, 10 km (6 mi) north-north-west of Trevi and 6 km (4 mi) south of Spello.
When we went off to Assisi for our celebration weekend last month we decided to stop and take a stroll round the town of Foligno en route. Our guidebook had nothing at all to say about this Umbrian town, but you can find out more by checking out the Wikipedia entry. Wikipedia Foligno. It was indeed very quiet when we were there but it is not a town that I imagine is on the average tourists list. If you want to see something of the real Italy is is worth a visit.
I was planning to share some collages of our visit, but as you will read further on this is not going to happen, so sharing some individual photos instead. The full album can be viewed at Flickr.com.

My apologies for the rather unimaginative post, but once again I am working from the iPad which has limited ability for posting as it does not support Adobe Flash Player. I am now taking another enforced blogging break until my VAIO has been fully repaired. There was a setback as it needs to be reprogrammed with all the specific Sony VAIO features.
If you are able to do so please join me on the Facebook page for News From Italy, the link can be found in the sidebar, where I am continuing to share snippets of News From Italy.
