After a very good night's rest, we are off to visit the new Antinori winery and visitors center.

Time for bed rolls around, and our apartment has no air conditioning plus it has been brutally HOTT here during the day, so we have to sleep with our windows and balcony doors open or we will literally cook alive. So, coming from a small town with no traffic at all to living on a 4-way round-a-bout might be one of the most annoying things to try ...
