I am sitting at the Fossato railway station, waiting for my train back to Rome.... It's homeward bound.... Bye bye Umbria. It's been superb getting to know you...
Now I am on the train... I had no idea how exciting I would find this train ride- it's allowed me to re-live my journey a little! We stopped at Nocera Umbra, and then as we were leaving, I saw the track that I had come downhill on! Then we whizzed through a couple of little stations that I think were in valley villages I walked through.
I have been re-breathing where I went. The leaves might be slightly greener, but other things remain. I have walked up the hills again, seen the houses and old churches perched on high. I have walked alongside the olive groves, and seen people in there pruning the branches. I've seen spring blossoms. It's been a short but precious time.
Now I am back in Rome. Arriving at Termini in rush hour was an experience: last time I was here I think many of the Romans had gone elsewhere.
And so the end cometh to this blog. Arrivederci!
