We are all exhausted after a day of exploring the countryside, shopping at a Factory Outlet and then attending the briefing at the language school. We only got lost once today as we went too far on the autostrada. We are going to get fit walking around Montepulciano. Lots of steep streets. Met other students tonight. A few fellow Australians, a few Americans , 2 Japanese and two women from Finland. They all seem friendly. Total immersion though with the teacher only speaking to us in Italian. Tomorrow we have booked a tour of the town for the afternoon after we finish language school. Although the tour will be in Italian.
