    Road to Rome

    June 6, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    I missed a walking tour of Florence this morning. Had a very sore throat, which is much better now, and dropped my IPad on my bad toe and it was sore too. At 3 o’clock we left for San Gimignano, medieval towers from the Middle Ages on a hill in Tuscany. It is a UNESCO heritage sight. We got out of bus on way up and countryside was amazing. Had a gelato and shopped. Drove to an eating place and had the best group meal so far....deep fried olives, bruschetta, tapenade on bread, ravioli, and then brought in on a huge tray, big roast of beef. Lots of merriment ensued as there was bottles of different wines on table and they brought beer if one wanted it. We sang in bus on way home and acted like a bunch of teenagers. Enrico drove bus around traffic circle 3 times as we were singing. A couple of young girls 20 or 21 are on the bus. One is with her parents and her friend came with her. Very attractive and pleasant.
