Entry #5 May 18, 2011
Our van drove us into the heart of Corsica from the coast where we stopped in the town of Sartene and met the mayor who is a good friend of Luciano. Our next stop was a tower, Campomoro, which was part of the defenses of the island. We had a commanding view of the sea from the top of this tower that was situated on a hill. We drove more inland and in the afternoon walked to the site of the Menhirs (Stantari) which are stone figures in the genre of Stonehenge. Most of the faces that were carved in the stone has eroded, but one had a faint image showing. We walked further to a stone structure called the Dolmen, an ancient tomb. Returning to Bonifacio, we had a wine and cheese and meat sampling. After that rather large "tasting," a pizza was sufficient for dinner.
