Goodbye to Siena

The weather gods took pity on me after yesterday's utter drenching, and gave me mixed clouds and sun but no rain for my valedictory look at Siena. An utterly charming town to which I hope to return.

This morning I got up before 7, got breakfast in the hotel, then went out to see as much as I could. Of course nothing was open yet at 7:40, but I wandered around and finally went to the Civic Museum on the Piazza Il Campo which has marvelous frescoes, and back to the Duomo for another look there, and I stopped in at a very intriguing food shop for a piece of cheese to eat with some apples on the train, and also succumbed to one of these muffins, which is called a Mushroom, and which contains sausage and cheese. I've never seen anything like it. I'll report back later about how it tastes.

The hotel people kindly gave me a late check out, so I'm resting my tired tootsies in the room before I finish zipping up my cases and gird myself for that marathon of stairs at the train station.

The rest of the Siena pictures are here. I'll title and tag them later.
