We biked down the hill out of Assisi today and near the bottom of the hill I saw a truck selling unglazed pottery for 10 euros! We found a great little town called Folingo in which everyone was biking...men with suit jackets, women with skirts, dad's with children. We have seen so few biker and there were bikers all over. We realized that for the first time that there was a level part of Italy. There is about a 20 mile stretch that is flat between to hills and this town was in this plateau. We even found a bike store which has been hard to find on our trip. Tony went in and ask for a good way to Spoleto and he said that if we bike another 4 kilometers we would have a bike trail all the way to Spoleto. It was good to get a little rest on the hills because we need to start crossing the hills tomorrow on our way back to Orvieto.
