      ... driving up and down steep Tuscan hills on a dirt road hunting for the villa in the pitch black. Also, the tiny Fiat Panda we'd rented didn't have enough power in second gear to climb the steep inclines, but first gear had way too much torque, so letting the clutch out inevitably resulted in a cloud of dust around us as the wheels spun in the dirt. That said, we made it, but only with the help of our hosts, who drove out to meet us. Most of the next five ...

      ... police station was this little trattoria – Hostaria il desco. I pull Laurie away from the menu of the first one and try to convince her that this little place is where we’ll find tonight’s dinner.
