Cortona: Back to Normal

Today, Sunday in Cortona, life back to normal, warm and sunny!

We hiked the hills

Life is good!

Tomorrow, weather permitting, we take to the road, not sure which direction, and perhaps no internet. Stay tuned!

Just now, as I am finishing this, black clouds have filled the skies and the winds are swirling. Nonetheless, a wonderful day! Good we have those leftovers…

Ciao,

Judy

    Judy-
    We will want to rent a car part of the time we will be in Cortona this fall. Do you happen to have a suggestion where we could do that? Please let me know when it is convenient.
    Sounds and looks like you two have had a wonderful day. We can hardly wait!

      We rented in Arezzo through Booking.com and have also rented from Il Girasole in Terontola, both easy to get to.

    Be sure to check and see if there is a free student show coming up. I believe it was right around this time we saw Much Ado About Nothing by the Univeristy of Georgia.
