L’ultima classe

Today was my last day of Italian classes. One week is not enough! I am coming back next summer for at least two weeks of Italian classes. Richard now wants to learn Italian, too! Success! Here are photos from my last day. I'm with my teacher, Alberto. I don't have a picture of my other teacher, Patrizia, but they were both excellent! And then my classmates: Stefano, Manuela (a German couple) and Dixie from Dallas!

This afternoon, Richard wanted to go to Sinalunga, where Alberto is from. It was pretty much a bust. It was cold and rainy, and the centro was old, but all the churches were closed, and the whole area was dead. Still, Jack commented that it was interesting to see an old town without any tourists. Next, on a whim, we drove on to Lucignano. It looked intriguing, perched up on a hill. Lucignano is actually a very interesting town. The medieval town is built in streets that form a concentric oval. It was beautiful and felt as if you were going back in time.

    Alberto seems like such a sweet guy – what a great face. How wonderful that Richard now wants to learn Italian, you know you’ll be coming back to Italy with him! Loved the photos – were they of Sinalunga or Lucignano or both?

      Both, but only a couple from Sinalunga. They kind of got mixed up when I loaded them into the blog. WAIT until you see the photos I’m about to load from the lottery and first trial of the Palio in Siena today! So exciting! We got the best seats at the last minute, right in front of the finish/start line!
