It also happens to be where one of my favorite books and movies, "Under the Tuscan Sun" was made. We booked a room at the Hotel Italia, which is an unbelievably beautiful hotel, 1000 years old.

... those everyday words you really should know if you want to get by in life...
In other language-related news, last night Maelys gave me another French lesson. I learnt the delightful phrases 'pompette' (tipsy) and 'cul sec' (chug...as in, to chug one's drink). Equally useful words to know.
All of us went to the park late morning (well, Livia came right at the end). That was entertaining. I went up in a children's climbing frame for the ...
