Old Peeling Paint

I simply wrote "It was quite wonderful. Gorgeous colour."

This is Siena in Tuscany. Old, ancient walls dull in colour, weathered and worn. You sit outside in the heat, under the umbrellas and discuss events. It's hot.

Chianti comes from Tuscany. So does Leonardo da Vinci. Tuscany has the best bread in the world (not quite...no salt in it but when you're in Tuscany eating their bread, it is). Tuscany is home to the town of Verona, which has the famous Opera festival all summer long. After the opera in the evening, sitting outside in the old Roman theatre, you go and sit some more at an outdoor cafe and have your pasta and Chianti....at 12:30 am.
