Friday photos are a little late this week as we spent a few days in Venice. Right now in Umbria, it is all about new olive oil, truffles, and chestnuts and there are a number of festivals held every weekend to celebrate the bounty. This weekend we visited a white truffle festival in Citta di Castello, and another in Gubbio. Citta di Castello was crowded with folks, as the Saturday market was being held along with the truffle festival. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived in Gubbio it started raining which cleared out the town pretty quickly. We visited a few booths and stepped into a restaurant for lunch to wait for the rain to pass. Today we are celebrating a friend’s Birthday at a local winery so our weekend was full!.
