Tiny, tiny towns - Monterone

Details....


Loved the various stone outcroppings - be they stairways, arches or chimneys...


The older the walls, the more things seem to have taken root therein...


The house-numbers were one of the few more modern looking additions visible on the walls. Lovely blue accented tile imbedded in stone.


We saw few occupants during our stroll, but we did run into this cutest, little-old-Italian-lady ever out walking with her cane....


She was actually quite chatty when we caught up with her (although I couldn't follow anything she said). She walked to the side of the road and pulled a few weeds - which my brother-in-law loosely translated that she was out looking for plants to feed her chickens. I kind of wanted to hug her.

What exactly is the house number with the big 4 and small 5? 45? 4.5? 4 to the power of 5?
