Even though Siena isn’t very far we still left at a decent time in the morning. We wanted to see the race on one of the ‘white roads’ so headed for the area southeast of the city. The journey there was thru some very beautiful countryside.
We followed two sections of the white roads and decided to go back on race day to partway along the longest section, which starts just outside the town of Asciano.
Having a general idea of where we were going to watch from we went back to the town to a park-for-the-night site and settled for the evening.
The next morning we walked around the town a bit, and had a very nice cappuccino at an outdoor cafe.
On the way Colin pointed out a building the had lots of windows – but some of them weren’t real, just painted on!
It was a very hot day – I tried to have a nap in the afternoon since my energy was so sapped but only managed to doze a bit.
We went back into the town in the evening and had dinner – I had the ‘pork plate’ that was five or six different kinds of pork meat, all of which was just delicious.
I did have a bit of assistance from Mo, but managed to do a pretty good job of it.
