This is the second time I have read Too Much Tuscan Sun and the humor hasn't diminished with time. Dario Castagno is a tour guide in Tuscany and the book is about "Americans through Tuscan Eyes." Through his tour company Dario shares his love of the Italian Chianti region and his experiences with tourists of all shapes, nationalities and sizes. One older white haired couple, who professed to be "athletes," met their young guide wearing identical jogging suits . . . baby pink for her, baby-boy blue for him. Their tour ended not at the hillside cafe where Dario had planned a charming lunch, but at the insistence of the tourists, under McDonald's golden arches. This is a great lighthearted read.
