Today was our cooking day. Lesley picked us up and drove us to her house in another nearby village. She is from England , but has lived in Italy for 11 years. She had Lisenna helping, who only spoke Italian. We made 4 courses. For our antipasti we made La Ribollita, or Tuscan bean soup. Our first course was gnocchi with a cheese sauce. We added spinach and tomato paste to some of the potato to make them green, red and white. Our second ...

The horse is blessed, I couldn't really see what was going on, but sign of the cross ...

There are bleaches set up for some of the contrada kids and other important folks, and I think you can buy bleacher seats too, but I imagine they are pretty pricey and difficult to get. We ended up getting to the middle about 5:00 (about 3 hours before the actual race). There weren't many people yet, but since we had no idea what to expect, we decided to just stay there.
