It's Saturday June, 20 and our 3 days flew by too fast, its time to jump the train back to Florence to pickup the rental car and drive on to the villa at Borgo di Vagli. The villa is located in a protected nature reserve in hills nears Cortona, our home for 3 brothers, one wife, a daughter and her girlfriend and me for the next week.  7 days can be a long time for a group of relatives, let’s hope we don’t try to kill each other!

This evening we headed to the small village of Mercatale for Laurens official birthday celebration and dinner.  The restaurant is called "Mimmi’s" and momma Mimmi rules the kitchen, pumping out a 12 course dinner over several hours and a homemade birthday cake for Lauren.  No menu is passed out to the guests; you eat what momma has prepared.  It was a fantastic evening and the menu included 3 pasta courses; we rolled out of Mimmi’s for our first nights sleep at the villa
