When we returned home, Giulia's, Angela's and Giovanni's
little brother was waiting for us.
Since my nephew Brian was along to open the bottles, Angela
took that job.
Dessert was a bowl full of fresh fruit and the raspberry
tart we purchased in Firenze.
And then I drove to Firenze to meet Carla & Lorrane, my
new "nieces" in the famiglia Chiettini.
Meanwhile, Francesca and Giampaolo prepared an Easter
We sat down at the dinner table and had a lovely minestrone
The next morning was Easter and we caught the bus to
central Firenze...a busy place!
Finally we arrived near the Duomo and all the festivities.
Finally they started to drag the old coach from the piazza
and back to its garage.
We, too, began our trek back to Casa Chiettini.
We found Francesca and her parents busy working on lunch...
The kids were busy hanging out with Grandpa...
Then it was time for lunch.
Grandma prepared a lamb stew for Easter and Francesca
Giampaolo pours some Sagrantino.
And soon it's time for the Easter "torta" they
made the night before...
And so it was time for my departure, but not before Carla
presented me with a little regalo di Pasqua...
Tante grazie Carla, Lorrane, Giampaolo, Francesca e
Nonna e Nonno!
