In Siena, everyone hangs their laundry on dry sunny days. Today was absolutely gorgeous and there was laundry everywhere!
It is very early in the year for the farmers to cut hay, but this was freshly cut… amazing scenery, but not a lot of color. I thought it made for a nice black and white.
Gelati today in Siena and a delicious zuppa di farro e fagioli (bean and wheat berry soup), and pici al aglioni (fresh local pasta with garlic tomato sauce) for dinner… Mmmmm!
We’re now booking our 2011 Villages of Tuscany workshop! It will be a unique cultural and visual journey. Visit some previous posts to get an idea of what we do. The dates are 14-21 May, 2011*. As always, we include 7 nights accommodation, in-country transportation, many wonderful meals, wine tasting, and much more! We’re really excited for another great trip.

*We can also arrange a similar tour for private groups to Tuscany or Provence! Contact us for more information…
Ciao for now.
Rain is not always pleasant, but for this, we’ll put up with it. It really was a spectacular scene! And we couldn’t walk past this lovely gelato shop showing off its rainbow of flavors without sampling some product…
Our workshop participants arrived today and we have our welcome dinner tonight at one of our favorite restaurants… We’ll be busy, so I may not post everyday this week.
