Back Home in California

My three months in Montepulciano with 
friends and family could
not have been more perfect.

The gardens and apartment shown here
are at the Politian Apartments where I lived
for three months in the Green Tea unit.
I loved it, as did my family and friends.

The apartment owners, brother and sister
Maria and Giacomo Stuart were welcoming,
friendly, and helpful
whatever my needs.

Last Day in Italy..Florence


Views from my hotel window




Views from the pool and bar on terrace








View from the bathroom




Sunflower Fields and Cortona














 Cortona in the distance



Thank goodness for 2 of these
escalators to get us up to Cortona
or according to Diane, good that they
were moving




















Giacomo Stuart recommended Osteria Del Teatro restaurant in Cortona,
so Diane, another resident of Politian apartments, and I 
went after seeing the sunflower fields.
We didn't visit all those churches shown.
