A peek of Siena

Glimpses of Italian class field studies behind the scenes in Corsini, a local bakery; Il Pelicano, a local pottery shop; the Selva street party; the Torre dinner in the Piazza del Campo; and major flooding in the city. Rain and hilly Etruscan cities like Siena make for soaking wet shoes.

<p>I am a junior at Bates College, where I study English, Creative Writing, and Chemistry. Though I left the beautiful forests of Portland, Oregon for snowier seasons in Maine, I&#39;ve discovered that there are valuable stories to be heard and told in ever corner, or coast, of the world. I am interested in people and the words they have to say, and I am thrilled to be in a city as rich with history as Siena. I hope to explore new perspectives of culture and life in Siena through words and photographs. Outside of story-telling, I am a varsity coxswain on the Bates rowing team, and I enjoy hiking, trail running, singing loudly in the car, and getting hopelessly lost in a good book.</p>
