Lucas, who showed us around even gave us some fresh spaghetti pasta for our dinner tonight!

Il Palio!!

... was along the perimeter for the race. We sat out in the 90 degree heat with literally not a cloud in the sky from 2 until about 5:30 when the parade began. Every contrada (even those not racing) is represented and it takes FOREVER because they march a little then stop and throw their flags and play drums and stuff and this just keeps happening over and over.
