Arriviamo in Montepulciano 

I have to take my placement test this morning but have so much to say about yesterday and last night. Will post some photos now and fill in later! ​Roberto, our taxi driver, took us to pick up our rental car, and we drove to Orvieto for lunch. Later, in Montepulciano, Sandra and I looked out her apartment window to see this procession celebrating Corpus Domani, a Catholic veneration of the communion host. We just missed a similar celebration when we arrived in Orvieto earlier in the day. Sandra and Kurt welcomed us with an amazing dinner in the giardino! Coniglio (rabbit stew) with polenta and zucchini sliced and marinated. Passagietto con gelato dopo cena.

 

With Roberto, our taxi driver who thought Donald Trump was like Mussolini

We knew this was a good place for lunch in Orvieto because everyone speaking Italian!

    Il coniglio e polenta è bello! Sandra deve essere uno chef gourmet, si?

    Montepulciano è molto invitante, e il tempo è perfetta!

    Grazie!!
