We survived our first day of Italian classes today. Kirsten and Michael enjoying a cappuccino and cannoli in the break. We get to practice with the locals. We did a walking tour of the history of Montepulciano - all in Italian. Exhausting when you have to listen so hard and still can only understand 10% of what is said. Our classmates are a family from Washington . We are now sitting with a glass of vino watching the Tuscan sunset.
