Started slowly this morning – it was quite foggy outside with a little bit of rain. I did washing etc, Di wanted to take it a bit easy because she didn't sleep well. Craig and Phil have gone for a big long walk in the local hills. It was great to take it easy. We eventually did go into Pistoia for another look around at things we hadn’t seen – ...

There are no drinking rules here, so we could all just sit in the piazza and causally drink wine or champagne while enjoying the fresh air.
