    We leave Pisa early Sunday morning, in the rain, heading south the place of vapour in the hills south of Siena - that is Tuscany proper that you see in documentaries.

    We stop in Bagno Vignoni for lunch and then a little walk to take a look around

    While rain gets nearer, it's decidedly warm for the season.

    Then we reach San Quirico, deep in the val d'Orcia, for an afternoon of oil and wine tasting

    And the, the photographer's dream: brick walls everywhere to satisfy the voices of GAS in the head!
