Today I got up as usual and walked over to my parent’s room to wake them up. My mom had already started washing the clothes, and I asked my dad if I could use the computer. He said to wait because my brother’s button was broken, and he was trying to fix it. But when he finished he said my brother could use it because he hardly ever touches it. So, instead, I played solitaire. Soon everybody was hungry, so we went down to breakfast. I had the same thing as everyday, except for the lemon-orange yogurt, which reminded me of Sorrento. We then finished, and I went upstairs. My brother had to write in his journal, so I used the computer. My dad also needed to run some errands in the town, so he took Robert with him. I played for a while, until Robert and Dad came home, and then I got off and grabbed my pack to go to Siena! I piled into the car and played cards while my dad drove. It wasn’t a long drive, so we were soon there, looking for parking. We eventually found some near a stadium, but we had to pay. I got out and walked up the stairs into the center of town. But my mom, as usual, had to go to the water closet (restroom). She payed 30 cents to use it , and then we were on our way.
My parents then planned out that Robert and Dad would look at jerseys, and leave us to go to a museum. The museum was right next to the Duomo, so we went in. I was free, but my mom was 6 euro. The main things were the actual statue of Reamus and Ramulus (a lot of other sculptures did them, but this was the original). After looking around a bit, we climbed a big tower and looked out at Siena. It was very pretty, but we soon went back down to see the Maesta, by Ducio. It was very big and full of gold, and I liked it a lot. The room was very humid though, to preserve the paintings. I read in my book that the four people kneeling were the patron saints of Siena.
After that we left and went to the fountain in Il Campo to meet Robert and Dad. It took a while for them to come, but they did. They had no luck, but stopped for gelato and found a place to eat dinner. They took us to the Trattoria La Tellina, but it wasn’t open for another hour. So we wandered around, and found a nice coffee machine with an American plug, but was 3 times too expensive. My dad was thinking of getting my mom one for a belated birthday present. Mom and I decided to have gelato, because they already had some. My dad showed us where it was, and it looked good. I ordered the cream and the chocolate ice cream. The cream was new, but was very, very, good. I managed to make a good mess, so we went to the restaurant so I could wash my hands. It was then open, so we went in. I washed my hands and then ordered tortellini with tomato sauce. It was very good, but it was getting late, so we walked back to the car and drove home to go to bed. I wonder what Volterra will be like tomorrow?
