Up North


Up to the high hills/low mountains north of Biella for a weekend debauch. There was a small local fair on in the centre of the completely unspoilt village (no nearby ski resorts). Excellent local wine in the bar (dispensed from a tap) was €1 a (very full) glass.

Matey here was flogging his home-prepared salami made from (among other beasts) donkey and goat. He calls his stall the Cholesterol Shop. Not far wrong there. All in all an excellent weekend.

Would that be "Don Camillo" country? How I loved those books - and always wanted to visit that 'world'!

Trust you indulged it a large slab of pig fat....

That stallholder bears an uncanny resemblance to Roman Polanski.
