Another event in Perugia this morning.. the Grifonissimo…a type of athletic event including a foot race.
Masses of people wearing Grifonissimo t-shirts, especially parents with kids, participating in the event.
Sponsored by a bank, the event featured a loud and enthusiastic moderator, loud and catchy music, and a periodic chorus of “Money, money, money.” By the noise of the excited crowd, it seemed like they were giving money away, but not likely.
I plan to walk with my luggage to the station, but after l lug both pieces down three flights of stairs, I am ready for a ride. How fortunate that Nico, the Airbnb owner, shows up at the door just as I am leaving. What a nice man to give me a ride to the station!
