Tuscany, Italy's wine country.
Days 1 & 2: Driving to our agriturismo and Touring Siena.
We left Rome on April 23rd in a rented vehicle and drove over to Sovi Cille
near the town of Rocco a Pilli,
where we had made arrangements for an agriturismo named
Here are some photos of it:
This piece of an old tree was in the front yard
of our apartment. When I first saw it, I thought it looked like some
kind of a water animal with its head on the left. (See, it looked like
a sea monster's mouth with some captured prey in it.) Then, when I looked at
it again, I saw a head on the right. Which is it? Right or left?
After spending a good night in a more roomy agriturismo - apartment from hereon -- I was still feeling a bit
uncomfortable (stomach problems), and decided to stay back while the rest
of the group went to see Siena and some smaller locations in the surrounding area.
At about noon I began to feel better and took a walk to and from our
apartment to downtown Rocco a Pilli, taking some photos of the area along the way.
In the meanwhile, Lynda, Bobbi and Dave drove to Siena, as well as
some surrounding areas. The following photos are from that excursion

Some unknown (to me) street views.
Don't ask me. I don't know.
Somewhere not too far from Siena, I would guess.
