Siena, a town I will never forget

Il Campo and the town tower

I want to start this entry by saying in advance that I feel bad about writing badly about Siena. It's a lovely town of about 60,000 with a huge cathedral, many other churches, brick coloured buildings and a ginormous square full of people all day long.

Unfortunately, I will remember Siena as the town where I felt my heart was ripped out of my chest and then trambled on for good measure. Because of this, I will not be leaving Siena with the same feelings about the town as I would have if the aforementioned had not occured.

Il Campo, the town square, is full of people, lots of couples walking hand in hand, arms around each other, sharing gelato, enjoying each other's company. To a normal person, this would be a nice place to hang out and sit in the sun. I did not find this the case for myself.

So how does one try to make herself feel better when she is alone in the middle of Italy? She buys a cheap bottle of vino and drinks the whole bottle herself and talks with a girl from Chile and a guy named, you won't believe it, Fabio from Rome.

Although it didn't make me feel better, the wine induced haze was very appreciated!
