Italy- Road Kill Cafe (Photo Update December 29)

Mrs. Turkadactyl and I have e njoyed three relaxing days at a farm just outside of Sora.  There isn’t much to do here so we have had no choice but to relax.  The down time has been grand.  Both of our hips have been sore with all the walking we have been doing.  Plus this has been the first time we have had some extended time off for a long time.

There have been three interesting events that have happened since my last post.  One is there is a new addition at the farm; a new lamb.  Mrs. T and I just missed the birth.  When we went to the stable the mother must have just given birth.  The lamb was covered in the womb juice.  We watched throughout the day as the lamb continously attempted to stand on its own.

After writing my last posts I tried a new pizza- french fry and hot dog.  I like pizza, I like hot dogs, and I like fench fries.  Why not try them all together?  Suprisingly it works very well.

The joys of staying at a farm is we get to try all sorts of new things.  I ate rabbit for the first time a couple of days ago.  Last night I ate fox.  We found out that the fox was road kill.  No sense letting good meat go to waste.  It tasted like lean beef.  I recommend it.

This is a reminder for myself.  I hear that The Longest Day is a good WWII movie.  If anyone has seen it please let me know.  I am most likely to forget it so I am writing it down to remind myself.

Tommorrow we pack up and leave for Siena.  Disappointingly Sora does not have any gelato establishments.  We have found the cheapest bottle of wine.  It cost 1,09 euros.  The wine is very cheap here because it gets subsidized by the government.  Don’t be fooled by the price because the cheap stuff is good too.  If Canaan is the land of milk and honey then Italy is the land flowing with wine and cheese, topped off with bread.  The cheese is good here.

This is the lamb that was born just before we arrived.  Look for the womb juice.

Here is the view we enjoyed every day we spent at the farm.

Olives are the major source of revenue for the farm.

  1. I believe we have the movie and it is a good one. “Patton” is my fav. Now where do we find Siena on the map?


  2. Italy sounds awesome. I’m interested in going but I have heard stories of butt pinchers and pick pockets!! Did you guys have any experience with that?

    Womb juice … haha … that was funny. Nice visual.

    Did the hotdog and french fry pizza still have tomato sauce on it?


  3. Emmy, we have not encountered any butt pinchers or pick pockets yet. I have my wallet in my front pocket. So far that has deterred any potential pocket pickers. The female type folk wear very tight jeans here. I think that may be their only defene against butt pinching. There was no sauce on the pizza. I chose womb juice for its visual potential.

    Fred, Siena is north of Rome and south of Bolgna. It is about halfway inbetween the two.
