Writing this at Heathrow on the road home. It's been a wonderful trip AND I am very happy to be on the way back. I didn't find wifi in Assisi, or in as many places as I hoped, plus I just wasn't ready for writing about the time there, but when I get back to Melbourne I will be digesting a bit and putting it in the blog. It's been an amazing time. More later...

Yesterday we did a field trip to Oviette - I think that is how is spelled - and it was wonderful. Last weekend we were in Rome and, except for pickpockets on the Metro, it was good too. But I am glad that this trip has been centered in Assisi.There is really a special spirit here, something that abides of the life of Francis. I think that this is one of those trips that will ripen inside, change me and the way I live in the world, over time. Good description of a pilgrimage, I guess.

Just a very quick note to say that this time is going very well and I am loving it. And that it is impossible to write about while I am in the middle of it. Except I can say that it reminds me, once again, why I am not any kind of a fundamentalist - words just can't do justice to the reality of life. SO back to platitudes: having a wonderful time, wish you were here!
