As with the previous class, the driver picked us up at Pontedera train station and brought us to Ca'Solare.

We arrived a bit early so I took more ground photos of Ca'Solare this time.

We were joined by this other couple, Nick and Anna from London and the translator was Lucca, all of whom were about the same age as us.

Time went by quickly when you were having fun and before we knew it, it was almost 3pm. We originally wanted to go to Carrara after the cooking class so we decided to skip the coffee and left.

However, we had a change of heart since we'd read that the marble quarry closed pretty early and we were worried we wouldn't reach the place in time.
Instead, we went back to our apartment and did some shopping at PAM. We got a little carried away that our total purchase amounted to 90 euros! At the apartment, I practiced what I learned from the Tuscan cooking class and cooked us some dinner.
