What a dance spectacular just for us ...
Last thursday morn ... one of the peacocks put on the most extraordinary dance display I've ever seen. He was up so close to me and the children, that I could reach out my arm to touch him.
We were sitting on a little wooden bench near the wood fired oven at first and he showed no fear, and stayed so close to us all.
He also jumped onto the railing of near by steps at one point to display his tail raising and lowering it and he was bringing it down onto the children's heads so for a moment it was like they were in a shelter or tent of peacock feathers
Alessia, Sam, Luca and Anna spent about 40 minutes engaged mostly silently in this incredible event.
