Siena

... people of Siena it is a very serious moment. Yet, many tourists do come to watch the race. We were told some recommendations to offer those from outside of Siena who do come to witness the Palio. First, be careful about approaching contradaioli in the time before the Palio, as this is a very sensitive moment and the people might actually act a bit aggressively. Further, on the day of the Palio, all the horses get blessed in the churches of the contrade. They recommends tourists to ...

The past couple of mornings I have had my tea under the trellis outside our front door. As I mentioned before , we have had perfect weather. I can smell the roses, hear the bees buzzing and the birds singing, and...... the wild boars fighting in the woods! Yes, wild boars. I have to say it is a little bit creepy and Fred and I agree, it is way too reminiscent of "The Island of Doctor Moureaux." We haven't seen one yet (and I really don't want to) but they ...

... have had three or four. I'm not sure exactly what that last jockey is looking for to determine when he'll enter & get things started, or how they determine exactly when to abort, but it's an interesting process. And even though we don't understand much of anything that's being said, we can tell when the crowd is tired of waiting or is getting angry!
