    ... choice but to skip out! It's not like we didn't try a few times to pay. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and for the next 3 hours we learned all about the Catterdrale, Libereria Piccolomini, the Pailo - the bareback horse race which was going to be run in a weeks time and the 17 contrada of the city who are vying for the horse race - a kind of state of origin type rivalry. The Palio, at Piazza del Campo only 10 contrade compete in each race and it is not a touristic event, and ...

    Apologies for bombarding you with blog notifications, but it's been so long since I had a reliable Wi-Fi connection I thought I'd best take advantage of it while I can.

    ... doctor to see a specialist about my ear. En route we managed a stop at Montalcino, a renowned wine district for Brunello del Montalcino and Rosso del Montalcino, both Sangiovese style reds. Disappointingly, as our luck has been for much of this trip, none of the winery cellar doors here are open on a Sunday for tastings. So after driving aimlessly around gorgeous rolling hills of grape vines and quaint wineries, we drove to the fort at the top of the hill (as they are always positioned!) ...

    Perfection!!

    ... stumbled across a cheese throwing competition that resembles the American game of paper football. Men formed teams and threw blocks of cheese to see who could get the closest to the edge. There was crowd participation in the form of wagering. Apparently, this occurs every year around Christmas.
