We took tons of pictures and even some cheesy tourist pics. In fact the leaning tower of Pisa is where Galileo dropped the light object and the heavy object to understand gravity.

We then headed to the cooking classroom right next door. We started by making Tiramisu and then put it in the fridge while we started on the pasta with bolognese sauce and ravioli with butter and green sage sauce. We made the noodles and ravioli from scratch (easy ingredients but the technique was hard with kneading the dough). We watched one ...
... br> Then we stumbled upon an absolute gem, the regional park of Maremma, a huge area of land full of cowboys, a funny breed of cattle with enormous horns, forests of strange pine trees and the most beautiful beach i have seen since leaving the Galapagos Islands. To ensure the park doesn't get ruined by overcrowding they have the most ludicrous and complicated entry system I have ever seen. After a lot of confusion, waiting in the car on the highway for ...
