Gordie by the car, Medici Garden, Arezzo.  Today

The Gardens of the Fort of the Medicis, Arezzo
So, because we had out suspension problem we weren't able to start the race today.  We had the car repaired, by the guys in the post just before this, and were off again at around 10.30, the rest of the fleet having left several hour earlier.  We decided to go to Rome by the direct route - not the one taken by the MM fleet - but to catch up with them for lunch in Arezzo.  It's (yet another) beautiful medieval town in Italy, this one beholden the (in?)famous Medicis.   Great welcome from all the towns folk and a buffet lunch under a grand marquee.
