Siena, Tuscany, Italy, the Palio and pasta

This is the Piazza del Campo. with the Palazzo Pubblico, the Gothic town hall, and the Torre del Mangia, a 14th-century tower.

Here we were, sitting at a restaurant, waiting for the Palio, a traditional medieval horse race run around the Piazza del Campo.

We were a week late.

There's always next year.

Not all was lost though, the spinach and ricotta ravioli was to die for.


I might add, the day was very hot, and in the middle of all that stone paving and brick walls, the heat was magnified and felt like what it might be inside an oven.

Oh, what I would have given for a cool breeze!
