Its been a busy weekend in Sauze d’Oulx and surrounding area. In Beaulard, just 15 minutes away there was the big wood machine trade fair, biggest outdoor show in Italy, with lots of toys for boys !! Tractors, chainsaws etc !!In Sauze d’Oulx itself the Summer Wheels event took place, a race around the mountains on quads and off road bikes. Today (Sunday 16th) the potato festival. Mountain grown potatoes for some reason taste much better than any other potato, all bio products. I spent the day helping sell on a friends stall. Our own potatoes are still under the ground but will be harvested soon and we will be using them this winter in the Hotel Stella Alpina restaurant.
