An Evening in Siena – Book Excerpt (Audio)

2044 In 2011 I went to Italy for three months as a solo traveler. That adventure is detailed in my first book, Memoirs of a Solo Traveler – My  Love Affair with Italy.  During that trip I stayed in Siena for ten days, using it as a base to travel through Tuscany. One evening in Siena was particularly lively. I thought you might enjoy an audio excerpt about that night.

    Hello again. Yes, I have gone to a soccer game in Italy. In 2008 I took my travel group to a game in Florence. The Fiorentina team was playing against Turin, as I recall. We bought scarves in the Fiorentina colors (purple and white), which made us feel a part of the local community. We cheered and sang along with the crowd, although none of us were Italian speakers…we just followed what the crowd was doing. I am sure they were amused by our singing, since we didn’t know the words.
    Siena is one of my favorite Tuscan hill towns.
