Stasera a San Quirico d’Orcia

We had a delightful dinner and evening in San Quirico d’ Orcia. So happy I invited Sarah (a.k.a. Francesca/Franki). I have a new friend, but she’s leaving Sunday. Dixie from Dallas, the friend I made in class here four years ago, invited me to her apartment in Rovereto next weekend. I just have to figure out how to get there. The fabulous restaurant is Il Vecchio Forno: my best meal in Italy! Commentary to follow. Or not. 

I came upon some wonderful shrines here

This guy reminds me of the Hunchback of Notre Dame

Another nuovo vestito per solo 22 Euro!

I love the medieval gargoyles and other figures

Notice the two mermaids

  1. Is that a Duomo necklace?

    Good eye, Elizabeth! Sara, wonderful photos as always. Great documentation of a lovely evening with our new friend, Sarah with an ‘h’.

    Love the mermaids–I would not have noticed them if you hadn’t mentioned them! And, I also enjoy seeing gargoyles–one of my favorite things about Verona is la chiesa St. Anastasia circo di Piazza Erbe, dove due sinistri (hunchbacks) salutano i visitors. Se si strofinano (I had to look that up–rub}) le spalle, portano buona fortuna……….your photo of the hunchback in stone looks just like the ones in Verona.

    What a lovely evening you all had! The pasta dish looks great–is the sauce with pistachios?
