What a Day!
Today was extraordinary. We set out for Arezzo, just 84 kilometers away, via the most circuitous route possible and returned to Siena via a completely different route. We had latte macchiato's in Castelnuovo Berardenga and visited the open-air Mercato in this very quaint village. We had a wonderful lunch in Arezzo and walked the streets of the old city. We had a late afternoon walk around Castello di Gargonza where this picture was taken, Our day ended again in Piazza de Campo in Siena for a late dinner. I took hundreds of pictures today. Because we were often high in the hills, we saw the true artistry of Italian farmers. The land is their canvas and the crops are their colors. With swaths of olive trees, grapes, peppers, tomatoes, corn, eggplant, grain and so much more, the countryside becomes their work of art and each hill we crested we found the work of yet another artist. They are true masters.
