... my first non-pickled olive and discovered that I actually likete fresh ones. Thus fortified we climbed back in the car for a trip to Montepulciano. Our GPS led us on a harrowing journey on increasingly treacherous roads and as the rain became very heavy we finally gave up. The ordeal wasn't over as the GPS took us on a hour long back road trek.

Panna cotta was the favorite this time. We are still in search of rice gelato! We had to do some research and planning to get to Volterra and Pisa tomorrow, so we got some down time in ...
