|From Llama farm near Umbertide to valley|
I was struck by how much Umbria, Tuscany and (to a lesser extent) the Veneto seemed like Northern California. No wonder when Italians came to California in the late 1800s they choose to settle in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, as it must have reminded them of the home they left behind.
I met with the site planner from Sterling this morning, along with park personnel and it was a very frustrating day. More later.
For now...take a deep breath, and pretend you're in Tuscany.
