Hello friends and family,
We have made it to Siena from Venice thank goodness and it was almost easy.  We had to change trains in Florence and thought it would be crazy, but everything went smooth and then we got in Siena and could not find our room again.  We got on the wrong bus even though when we gott on I asked the mean bus driver and he said, "yes, yes".  Then when we asked some fellow passengers if we were on the right bus for Via Del Tozzi, they said, "no, no".  Now what?  So I went back up to the driver and he told me "momento".  I waited and a few minutes later we came to a stop and he told us to wait for #5.  Then he parked the bus right there and walked off.  We thought he said 50 minutes.  Whew, we did not know what to do.  We were looking at the schedule on the wall in Italian looking like we knew what we were looking at and of course I was talking when a young girl named Meghan came up to us and helped.  Yes, a Meghan wow it was great.  We talked to her and she was here on her own from Washington going to med school for free because she was volunteering at the hospital.  She stays with an Italian family and she said it is O.K.  We followed her and then she went one way and we were lost.  Anyway, we finally fouind our place and headed out for a short venture.  That is when we found the group from St. Louis.  Traveling with the group sounded like a dream.  We are headed back out tonight for a little dinner and just wanted everyone to know so far so good.  This place is really amazing.  Hope you enjoy the pics.
Hugs and kisses to everyone
Love
Mick and Lisa
