Arezzo

Last week Enzo needed to go to Arezzo for an appointment and invited me to tag along to explore the city. On the way he said, “I think it’s time for a cappuccino (me) and a caffe (him).” He now knows my affinity for cappuccino. I also had my new favorite pastry – angelo dito, or angel finger. 2015-04-16 11.15.12In Arezzo Enzo dropped me off in the historical center to explore for a couple hours. It was a sunny, brilliant day and I joyfully wandered. 2015-04-16 12.20.282015-04-16 12.21.562015-04-16 12.24.20

I met up with Enzo for a quick lunch, after which he remarked that he thought it was time for another cappuccino and caffe (it’s very non-Italian to have cappuccino after the morning hours, but I’m okay with that).
