ah Tuscany………..

I took an extra day off for the Spring bank holiday and spent four days in Certaldo in Tuscany. An afternoon in Pisa (the tower’s much bigger than I expected), then off to stay at a very old ex-monastery in Certaldo called Fattoria Bassetto. I had a fiendish cold and it rained for 3 days but it was good to be back in Italy, eating great food (I did a cooking course) and speaking Italian again. Not too many photos due to the weather though…

Fattoria Bassetto…

Sunset through the rain on my last night…

I did the long walk round the back way through the fields to Certaldo’s old town up on the hillside. I arrived just in time to order a coffee and take it under an umbrella before a massive storm hit. The rain bucketed down, hailstones the size of marbles pelted the ancient road and it was so dark it looked like sunset at lunchtime…
