a hike in Assisi
a haze of green and stone.
later in our trip, we visited Assisi, home of St Francis, the patron saint of animals and the environment. the town was rather small, with just a handful of gelato shops, and the highlight of the area was a short hike up to an ancient fortress. the aqueducts and other structures just towered out of nature and it was hard to grasp the incredible manpower that it took to make them.
