132 Days of Tuscany chronicles our life in Italy from August 24, 2007 to January 2, 2008. Sandy's BLOG has been compiled into a journal completed by photographs taken by the whole family. Peter was once more Coordinator of the Ontario College of Art & Design's Off-Campus Studies in Florence and we lived in a country house in the hills on the outskirts of the city. The boys, Zefan and Miko home-schooled and we traveled the small roads to continue exploring the marvelous land that is Tuscany. It is all documented here in brilliant colour and engaging story-telling.
