Now, I wanted to put up a few more pics of Cielo Chiaro, our house here in San Marino (which isn’t even really a cluster of houses, but a loose designation for a rural neighborhood on the top of a hill), but I don’t want it to seem like I’m saying “nah-nah-nah, look at our Italian house.” Really, I just want my mom (and Nat’s mom) to realize that we’re not in a complete Italian remote ruralness, and that we do have a charming house, with running water, and some grounds to walk the hounds on in the morning. With that, here’s a look at the hounds (that’s Sookie and Rory, if you’ve forgotten) regular hang out space, which is a big, about twenty-five yard-square fenced-in area (Andrew and Marianne put up a new fence before we got here) that they run around (you can see them barely in this pic):
Cielo Chiaro specials we’ve been cooking up.
PS: Want to stay in Cielo Chiaro your-own-self (after we've gone, that is)? Check out the Cielo Chiaro page on the Amici Villas site.
