Buying wine i Montepulciano07.31.08

Went to Ambra to buy shoes from Pratesi – a small shoemaker in Tuscany. They did not have my size in the colour/model I found most appealing. So they called up their shop in Montepulciano which had the right size. Therefore, a small trip to Montepulciano. And then why not pick up some more wine while we were there. So here is Tiziana – una bella ragazza -saying hello.

  • the tuscan cat
    I for one believe that Leonardo (da Vinci) was really smart. And I also believe cats are smart creatures. So when I spotted a nice cat sleeping on a scooter carrying "the signature" Leonardo somewhere in beautiful Italy I just had to "shoot".
