A bit of hiking, a bit of art
18 October 2019.  Sardinia, Ulassai, Italy.
 
 
 
 

We're in Ulassai and the weather in Sardinia remains perfect. We hiked up a nearby mountain, passing through a slot in the rocks popular with rock climbers, then in the afternoon we visited an exhibit of the works by the Ulassai artist Maria Lai.

Rock climbers
     
Ulassai is pinned in by steep rock walls so it's popular with climbers. And no, you won't find me climbing any rocks.

Maria Lai artwork
     
The Stazione dell'arte, a train station turned art gallery, currently features a showing of works by the Ulassai multimedia/performance artist Maria Lai. In addition to a gallery filled with her pieces we also enjoyed her multimedia fairy tale "Holding the shadow by the hand." A number of Lai's pieces are stationed around Ulassai, in an open-air gallery.

Paul in front of our Ulassai b&b
     
Our very nice b&b managed by a very warm and demonstrative young woman named Monica who speaks no English yet somehow was able to communicate just fine. For €60 per night we got the whole floor, roomy and modern with a living room, bedroom, and bath with laundry.
