Chapter Nine (2008): San Filippo

After spending a few nights on a Chianti vineyard, another dream is realized when Debbie attends a horseback riding academy in the Chianti region of Tuscany with her cousins for a week. Accommodations are a converted, restored stable. People from all over Europe and the U.S. share the dining room table each night. In Rome, another sad reality faces her, and she comes to believe the German female blacksmith she met on the pig farm was, in fact, right: “Romans think they still run the world!”
