Sightseeing Assisi Style

One segway, two segways, three segways. I noticed them to our left as we were on a way to the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi to sing. We were running late. The 11:00 mass was about to star and the priest was anxiously waiting for us by the door but I could not let this moment pass by. I guess they did not want to climb those stairs as inclined as they are, hence the segways.

I had just finished a tour of Cailler Madison, Cailler La Chocolaterie Suisse factory, learned how chocolate is made, its process and types of cacao beans, nothing new here coming from an island, smelled different aromas of exquisite cocoa, tasted all the chocolate samples on the table the factory produces and was just in awe. Now, the verdict was in, they were saying hello to me, which one’s to buy as I set foot in the lala land of the souvenirs boutique. Too many to pick from and my brain wasn’t having it. I needed a moment to reflect on the trip I was going to embark but my brain still didn’t want to cooperate as each one of the tablets were pleading, pick me, pick me on a sea of many. I was left to confer with buggsbunny to please guide my taste bud to make a sensible decision but my wallet was like, really? Yes wallet, take a seat!

Day 2 Post 1
Day #2, and my first positive message of this day is that I am thankful to have woken up. True, I woke up before 5 a.m. on a Sunday, and I would have really preferred to sleep until closer to 8, but wake up I did, happy, healthy, and knowing that I will see another day with my family. As I sit by the window in my office (house is stifling hot, and that’s the only place with a breeze and ceiling fan) typing this status, the birds are singing up a storm outside and I listen to the sound of the wind blowing through the leaves of the trees. Honestly folks, can it really get any better than this? I think not. Except, maybe if it were 8 a.m. and it was Saturday instead of Sunday. LOL!
