i should have seen this coming

after the volterra episode

but of course i assume the weather will be better

and it's snowing just as much

ha!

well i couldn't do much in siena

because the weather was so hard to function in

but i walked around a little and enjoyed

it's cute little streets

il duomo

it was really hard to take pictures

while wet snow was flying everywhere

so most of my photos are from the inside of the beautiful duomo

please note:

none of the art on the wall

has ever undergone restoration

and i bet it must have looked this beautiful,

if not more, 500 years ago when it was made

i always think libraries are the most beautiful
