san gimignano

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

san g is a little medevial town that nicole and i visited while in tuscany, italy. this place has been around since 332, and it used to consist of thirteen towers (some of them got bashed down in wars and things) that were made to see who could build the tallest tower.

san g is the type of place that you will find flower boxes out of every window, washing hanging out of impossibly high windows, little doors leading to secret pathways and amazing views of the tuscan country side.

it rained the day that we visited (the whole day! cue fashionable raincoats!) and a strange mist descended upon the whole city, making the whole thing pretty spectacular.

Oh brings back so many memories! Rain, gigglefit, torture den, rain, patriotic Italian men, rain, pongobello, etc. Haha.

My fav of this lot is the one of the cat. Spooky, evil cat it was.

Looks great, Aimee!

Love Nicole
