Orvieto - Day 2

It is Saturday and another wonderful day. We visited the market this morning with Kristi and Bill and purchased some wonderful fresh produce for a picnic lunch in the courtyard at the convent.
Mom and I love the fresh Pecorino cheese so bought a wheel from the local cheese man along with strawberries, grapes and bananas to add to the picnic.
The vegetables were fabulous lots of color and inspiration here.
We spent the rest of the morning strolling around the streets shopping and taking in the wonderful Italian culture.
I did a little photography of the wonderful old buildings and many doors topped with metalwork and painted in rich worn colors.
Many of the students arrived this afternoon. We all gathered for dinner at a local restaurant before retiring for the evening.
Bill has just posted about the classes prior to my week please visit his blog for a little more about wonderful Italy.
Take care
