Have had a lazy day if you can call climbing up a hill 3x to get to the town lazy.

The hotel has a fabulous view but it means a climb.

Hotel seems to be favoured by Poms and Germans.  There is a group of 12 Poms doing an arty thing here for a week.
I just had dinner (ok) in the same restaurant as the art group, amazing how the toney accents changed as the wine kicked in….meow.

Not much else, just my surprise at the lack of rivers in Tuscany apart from the one that my creek ran into…all seems to rely on ground water. There are some lovely boarded up wells.

The vineyards are not allowed to irrigate unless there is no rain from Feb to July…..  But my heavens they spray a lot…

Blood pressure is up so off the salami and proscuttio and the red wine…
Actually found a fruit shop today, but nothing is cheap in these trendy little places.

Back on the road again tomorrow with one killer hill apparently.
Oh yes, daily thunderstorm at 4 pm but not as ferocious as they have been.
