Monteriggioni

Is a small walled town on top of a hill between San Gimigiano and Siena.

I am up a zillion stairs and think there are four bedrooms off a large open space. I was not quick enough to go ooh and aaah and MH, young and blond, said how could you not love this!

View….I gave a sick cat smile thinking I would much rather be in the four star across the road than trendy…

Walking today was different- it was sunny.  Knocked up 18k and got here just before the heavens opened..

Have to trail to the other end of this little town to Blondies place for brekkie, daft.  This is not the prettiest part of Tuscany, lots of forest..

Had fresh truffle on pasta for dinner last night accompanied by Brunello wine, very nice…the American selected ..Not sure how the truffle is prepared, looked like mouldy potato peel but had a yummy dense mushroomy taste.

Not much else. The loud thunderstorm is just abating..
