On June 14, 2006, we arrived in Rome, where Wei had recently been recognized for his role in branding the new Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Award. We were joined by Sheila's niece Sarah, who worked for the United Nations World Food Program in Rome. Over the next few days, we explored the stunning Tuscany, Umbria, and Le Marche regions, visiting many beautiful towns and cities together.
Wei knows Siena very well as he spent a whole month participating in an opera workshop in 2001.
During my one-month stay in Siena (2001), I photographed many door knockers.
