Excerpt from Message

7/2 Siena Each place we visit we are more enamored of than the one before. These hill tours are especially fascinating clinging so securely to the hill slopes. All the streets are narrow & stone paved with charming vistas over the valets to distant mountains. The landscape with its green & brown checker board squares is not like anything I’ve seen before. We have just returned from the Palio. It [illegible] description the color the crowds, the holiday art & best of all the lack of commercialism – It is a fiesta of the people – following a religious celebration of the Visitation. The chocolates were delicious. Helen
