... soils and were aged different lengths. All of them were like all of these hill towns -- very similar, but different in their own way. The woman pouring the wine offered Lizzie a glass, but Lizzie said she really didn't like wine, so thanks, but no grazie.

On the first street, Sue walked into a ceramic store and found some handmade earrings and a ring, which she purchased with birthday money from her mother.
