... rest we went into Pistoia by nighttime for the first time actually. We tried to see the Ospedale de Ceppo but it was being renovated. You could do a subterranean tour but we decided not to. Walked around the town by night and it was quite lovely. Craig bought a floral pair of shorts. We had a drink in the market square, which was nice and then chose Ristorante del Duomo. It was situated in a lovely little street with archway and quite ...

A memories bar. ...
... impromptu gave us a tour of their workshop, explained how alabaster comes in 6 types (opaque white, translucent white, dark brown, light brown, white with brown streaks, and white with white streaks), showed us some of their tools/machinery, and gave us some demonstrations. Alabaster is mined in caves and it is a little bit softer than marble. It was a treat that they spent so much time with us, and the kids really enjoyed it. There was a fine white dust everywhere! ...
