Here are some of my photos from that week, together with my efforts of producing watercolour paintings from the inspirational scenes that abound in Umbria.
Early morning at Stansted
On finals with Assisi in the distance
A classic Fiat 500
Every Italian door is different (no uPVC in sight)
Our tutor helps a budding artist capture the view
Perugia is full of character
The local vineyard in Montefalco

I must try painting this
Approaching sunset in Assisi

Montefalco olive groves
Glad I was sending postcards from Montefalco and not the B.... place

On the hotel terrace
My first ever sketch
In other news, I see that Lewis Hamilton is leaving the McLaren F1 team at the end of the year, and will be joining the Mercedes team for 2013. So my suspicions mentioned in my post on the 8th of this month were correct.
The World T20 (WT20) cricket match tournament is underway in Sri Lanka. The England women won their first match yesterday when playing Pakistan. They are due to play India tomorrow and Australia on Monday.
I'll be keeping an eye on how it goes.
All the best
