|Exploring Castalina..the authors and Eloisa|
Some afternoons and evenings have spent in the local village of Castellina in Chianti and the best way to describe our experiences is with a visual presentation of our experiences with the local culture, food, wine, markets and leather shops. The weather for the first two days was misty and very cool, with a good thunderstorm on Friday afternoon.
This morning we have woken up to clear skies and a light breeze. I am sitting in the garden writing this blog, inspiration tugging at me to get back to my story.
So sit back and enjoy...while I write...after all that's what we are here for!
