Yep, we’re together again! After meeting at the Rome airport and getting our Fiat Panda, Donna and I ( aka Telma e Luisa) set out for her apartment near Radicofani in Tuscany, a 2.5 hour drive.
After a stop at the supermercato, a trip to Radicofani for a dinner of pici, Tuscan pasta, we dragged our butts up the ancient stone steps of La Loggia, unloaded the groceries and crawled into our respective beds.
The next morning found Telma in the kitchen making soup, a staple for busy students. Oh, did I mention that the purpose of our sojourn is to take the language course once again at Il Sasso in Montepulciano.
But today our purpose was squazzare, to wallow in the warm, thermal waters of San Casciano dei Bagni, readying ourselves for a week of study and potential stress!!! We were good at wallowing!!!
We left without one ache or pain in our bodies. . . Happy campers!
So today it was back to school. We both felt so very happy to be back in Montepulciano , a quintessential Tuscan hill town, and more importantly, to be back at il Sasso. We completed our placement tests, got into our classes and started parla, parla, parla, or chiacchierata. . .chatting, talking, and then reviewing, and enhancing our knowledge of La Bella Lingua.
A few hours later we revisited the site of our first lunch last year. Just as good as we remembered it!
