Pile ’em high

Photo: A hint of what was to come

It didn’t matter to me. I’d just burnt over 2,000 calories climbing Monte Nero on the bike with Leo and Maddi. 13km of pointing upwards, rising to 1,400m aboove sea level.

After a fast descent we met Jan at the Ristorante Il Poggio in Cagli for lunch.

It’s famous for its carbonara. Not just the taste, but the portion sizes. We had two small portions of the Carbonara Classica and two small portions of Carbonara al Tartufo. The largest portion they do is 300gm of pasta. That’s not a portion, that’s a mountain. One mountain was enough for the day.
