... from a distance. Let me say this Craig is great at helping me achieve all my little goals/adventures and things to find in Italy. We did stop at Pienza, which was truly delightful – almost a little Pistoia with a lovely city square, great views and beautiful streets to amble down. A good village to live in we thing – easy parking, clean and friendly. We made contact with Silvia and then drove on to Ambra. This is the town we lived in for a week 6 years ago. Silvia ...

Just to make sure, I ask someone... Sure enough, I'd walked right past the Old City. Glad I didn't miss it, because this looks like a very unique old city. Surrounded by double layers fo walls, the walled city is shaped as a hexagon, with towers that are shaped like arrows at each corner. Since Grossetto ...
... at the poor conductor about their poor management and service and everyone applauds him in the end... Finally another train comes by and I hop aboard, arriving in Grossetto late at night, where I have to walk quite a ways to reach the edge of town and find a suitable place for camping. My first spot has very high grass and a lot of bugs, so I continue on. Maybe I should've picked a smaller town for camping out next ...
