a tuscan road trip

joão rented a car, and the whole of tuscany with it. empty country roads yielded to our little fiat car of four: my housemate, adriano the estathé-loving stranger and yuwen who took care of all of us. for miles we drove and for miles we saw no one but the expanse of the hills of countryside tuscany, rolling away as more rolled towards us.

two cities, an abandoned abbey, and a few stops later, cold, rain-drenched and hungry, we wind up in the kitchen of a little tuscan vacation home just outside of san gimignano, complete with a checkered tablecloth and brick walls, where adriano and yuwen filled the place with tomatoes and mozarella, butter pasta with bacon and fried potatoes – non ci sono parole.
