Hello to everyone!

Glazing in the morning, and then off to some trips! First to Terry Davis near Certaldo ( who used to soda fire a lot before he came to Tuscany

Visiting San Giminiano

Where we could observe the Italian way of throwing: standing beside the wheel

And returning to La Meridiania we could observe how Pietro introduces the soda
