Ave Maria Alarm clock!

Posted on Updated on

This week we are staying in a house in a tiny hill-top hamlet in Italy. There are probably 10 houses – plus a church.

The church is about 50 metres away and has a bell tower.

At 7am this is our wake up call.

Apparently this is common in Italy and is the Ave Maria ring to get everyone out into the fields! Initially rather annoying when on holiday, but now I am getting used to it I quite like it!
