Friday and Saturday were tours for two different families for Dominick. Both were to Podere la Capella, a very small, family owned and operated vineyard and wine producer. Natasha is an excellent cook, and the food is always amazing. Friday was a family of 7 and Saturday was a family of 5. Everyone on both days did well and enjoyed the tour. Friday, we were stuck in traffic with the highway closed for an accident for over an hour, but only the driver was really bothered. After returning bikes and picking up the others for Saturday, I rushed home to splash some water on myself an was off to a birthday party at the 4 Seasons Hotel, probably the nicest hotel in Florence. Beautiful event. Last night after the tour I had time to relax a little, then we were off to a very nice dinner at a beautiful home on Bellasguardo with friends of Emily's. Very interesting people and a fun dinner. Today, if time allows, I will get out for a quick recharge ride solo, then I have to take my laptop to the applestore here at the only mall in the Florence area. My battery is suddenly dying, and hopefully they will be able to replace while I wait. I hope so, as everything is on this machine. Ciao.
