It was time to have lunch with wine from the monastery
to try and savour and the kiwi that was given to us. It was ripe and delicious
with honey and yoghurt.

  1. It must be fabulous to be studying amongst such beautiful surroundings and with those views. The architecture is stunning. Glad you enjoyed that kiwi, the simplest lunches are usually the most mouthwatering.
