This was supposed to be a 1/2 day outing..........but We started early in the morning after a lovely salad, grilled vegetables, sausage ( from yesterday), ham and egg breakfast. Sue cooked up a storm! We had heard that we needed to park outside the city wall for the day and walk in. Paid parking of course as car spaces are at a premium. We enjoyed the beautiful sunny clear morning drive but were not expecting the traffic, narrow windy streets and congestion of outside of the wall. It was ...

Maria (the owner) came down to see the girls in the pool, she was wrapped up in a scarf and winter woolies! I must admit it has been cold today, all of us even putting on our sweatshirts for the first time since arriving in ...

... to bribe the number 10 horse with money to ensure he starts when they are in a good position. Apparently thousands and thousands of Euros are offered on the track in a bid to win the Palio. It took a further 45 minutes of jockey bartering and a series of false starts before the race finally began.
