<3 Siena <3
We have made it to Siena! After a long bus ride we are finally here. My room mate is amazing (her name is Julia and she is from Chicago) and our host parents are so great!(Paula and Marco) They speak zero english and we have a hard time communicating but it is so fun! We live in an adorable town home with 2 gardens, where we eat our meals when the weather is good. Siena is more than I ever could have imagined! I feel like Im walking through modern Excalibur with the stone streets and hardly any cars drive inside the walls of siena. There are thousands of Vespa's everywhere. On days when there are soccer games the entire piazza Gramchi is filled with them and it looks like a liquidation sale. We are heading to Florence on Thursday and Volterra on Saturday (shout out to all the Twilight fans)
Well, Im off to take my morning run that looks over all of Siena Ciao!
