After leaving Juniper, we headed over to Arezzo, in the Tuscany region.Still feeling under the weather, and speaking of weather, we had the fifth straight cloudy, rainy, cold day. Can't complain too much after all the great weather we had the last 60 days. Been fighting this cold for six days now, never, so far, getting out of control, but …
Today is our second to last day at the villa - the week has certainly gone very quickly.
