and when you look at assisi from a distance,

you see a little white-ish, pinkish town

i got this audrey hepburn poster when we were in perugia

earlier that day, but i had to carry it around with me when

we went to assisi. i thought it would only be appropriate to

document audrey's company during our adventures

(ps.. sorry that my teeth are my only visible attribute...)
