San Gimignango

imageWe drove to another hilltop village with medieval beginnings. San Gimignano is famous for its towers, and for its role as backdrop to Franco Zefferelli’s “Romeo & Juliet” movie from 1970. We found wonderful Tuscan views and cappuccino. We also learned that if you order ‘biscotti’ you get served a variety of cream and chocolate desserts…so I’m working on that one.
Nancy has learned that if you walk up to the proprietor of the local bistro and say ‘pasta?’, that he will open the kitchen after it is closed, explain the menu and serve three kinds of spaghetti for just a few Euros. What a woman!

It has taken me three hours to get this post finished — the wireless at the farm is so verrry sloowww…
