Today we visited Siena, the birthplace of Saint Catherine. The city, as many of the ones we have already viisted, is a medieval one but this city no longer has its walls. It fought for many years with the people of Florence. It is famous for The Palio, which is a horse race that is held twice a year on July 2 and Aug 16. The people stand in the middle of the Piazza del Campo and on the outside edge and the ten horses race in between. The riders ride bareback and the 10 ...

Sure, I'll get right on that Patrick (as I ripe up his business card). We left giggling and headed for a great (but stinky) cheese shop for even more cheese. Home we go for wine and cheese!
