I've just heard the official weather information source and I'm afraid I can't run this afternoon because of downpours. This morning the town is on its knees: roads closed and bridges under water. Lacking light in two neighborhoods and a lot of children haven't gone to school.
I hope the weather will be better soon!

Yesterday I had a nice trip in Tuscany where we visited old villages. From November, 2nd, the Chestnut Festival has been held in Piancastagnaio and, along its old streets, visitors have had chestnuts and glasses of warm red wine, cooked with cinnamon, orange, apples and cloves. The first photo shows one of the big pots where chestnuts are cooked.

That's a picture of my wife with a small bat on her head. She wore it with my daughters on October, 31st and it was just a joke :) Although we don't celebrate Halloween here in Italy, a lot of shopkeepers sell some items related to that great U.S. holiday and it seems that children enjoy the event.
While I was walking along those Tuscanian old streets I observed a beautiful sacred image located between two windows.
Happy weekend to all my blogger friends!
