Orosei seems a jumble of buildings in various states of repair/disrepair, which I guess could be said about any town in Sardinia. The streets are so narrow you best flatten yourself against the wall when you hear a car coming. To be fair the Italians, while they ignore stop signs, tailgate, and drive at double the speed limit, are very good at stopping for pedestrians. Almost as good as Canadians.

Today we drove out to the Orosei beach but not being beach people we then drove over the mountain, via a sequence of tight hairpins just made for a tiny Fiat, to the town of Cala Gonone which fronts a bit of rocky beach between steep rock cliffs. It's all very rugged and beautiful.

The beach at Orosei      
If the skies weren't hazy you could see a mountain range in the distance. Cala Gonone, which we visited later in the day, is on the other side of these mountains.

The pass to Cala Gonone      
The route we took to Cala Gonone is the definition of a hairpin road: a narrow paved path with corners so tight you'd not make it in a vehicle any larger than the average car.

Pasta, pane carasau, and beer      
The day ended with tasty pasta. What's notable In the photo is the pane carasau (also called pane guttiau) on the right-most plate, which is a thin, crispy flatbread that seems to come with every meal in Sardinia.

We awoke to good election results from Canada. Otherwise we had a quiet day: we hung around town, ate at a couple of neighborhood restaurants, worked on our reading, and planned tomorrow's route to north west Sardinia.
