Today was a field trip day and we started of touring through the amazing vineyards of Italy and the weather was amazing!! We were served the most amazing lunch by the highschool in Cortona were the students are studying to be in the hotel and restaurant business. It was so crazy and the food was so exciting because it was the first time we have actually seen lasagna in Italy!! (this was the first moment of pure happiness) Our group then went to Il falconeire which is the 3rd best resort in the world! We toured the resort and the vineyards they have and then spent the day outside in the fabulous patio restaurant and sipped on some world famous wine!! The views were breathtaking and we are really all considering moving here!! Last night we also had the most amazing dinner that anyone in Cortona can pay to be a part of. We had a 5 course meal. Had ridiculous truffle, quail, the best pork ever and desserts that are unbelievable!! We also got to try 5 different kinds of wine with each course Nothing better and was the first time we felt very Italian. Tomorrow we are off on another adventure to Pisa and will be spending the day touring all over!! The science kids come back tomorrow can't wait for all the festivites to begin... We have Lib's birthday to celebrate and the fact that this trip has been amazing and we still have France and Spain to come!! Also saw were New Moon was filmed in Italy.
