Even the locals are surprised by the amount of rain we’ve had since November. The good news is that our water cistern is full and the countryside is beautifully green. The bad news is that one night in November we had a landslide at the back of the house pulling down a large section of wall – Andy is pictured beside it looking very depressed by the thought of rebuilding it!
It took him two weeks of back-breaking and very muddy labour to put it back together again and make it safe so that this extreme weather won’t bring it down again. It looks fantastic now, and I love the shadows of the Trullo cones in some much needed sunshine here.
