Hi Hans:  I was just in the exact area this March and have spent a lot of
time in the area.  Happy to dialog with you.  Just e-mail me directly.

Subject: [Leica] Trip to Tuscany-Italy

> I am going to the Tuscany region from June 1 to June 10 with my wife. My
wife will be a working journalist there, and I will have plenty of time for
exploring the region on my own.
> I have rented a car, and we will live on a vineyard somewhere on the road
between SanGiminiano and Volterra. (Firenze, Pisa and Siena are the nearest
largest cities).
> I am posting this to see if there are any LUGers in the region. Maybe we
could meet and share a beer or something!
> To keep this a little Leica-oriented, I will bring two M3:s and a M6 with
Rapidwinders plus 21-35-50-90 mm lenses and FP4, Tri-X and Velvia film. Like
I usually do, I will bring two photo bags. One big with room for everything
and one small for only two cameras with 35 and 50 mm lenses. Most of the
time I will be using the mini-equipment, as I like to move around without
breaking my back. The price for using the M3:s is that I will have to carry
an extra goggled Summicron 35, maybe a bit silly, but never mind. My M2:s
will be resting at home this time...
> I am also grateful for whatever suggestions what to photograph/visit in
the region. Thanks!
> Best,
> Hans
