Easter fare

‘Pizza di Pasqua’ means Easter pizza.

It isn’t pizza at all, but a cake made with cheese.

It’s typically eaten for breakfast on Easter Day in Umbria, along with salame and eggs.

Our neighbours brought some today, along with salame and eggs!


Kepler and the hunt

A hunter with his rifle

When the boar hunters came round last time, I wrote in my blog post for the day that I believed the main danger during a hunt is from the guns.

Anyway here is a man carrying a rifle about 100 yards away from the house.

We were alerted about the hunt this morning when the dogs had already gone out. I told my contact that we’d get our 2 older dogs in, but please to watch out for a small brown one that looks like a fox as I might not be able to catch him.

After a lot of Peek-a-boo and Can’t-catch-me, I got hold of Kepler when the hunt was already underway in the distance. The bait that was eventually successful was  a small piece of cheese.

I took the photo of the hunter from the bedroom window with all 3 dogs safely by my feet.

Fox? Dingo? Muntjac deer?
