Hi from Cinque Terre Italy

If you dismiss missing a train and sitting at the train station after dark and a cracked window in the cockpit of the jet bringing us here, we have arrived with no mishaps.

The five towns of the cinque terre are Monterosso, Vernazza, where we are staying, Corniglis, Manarola and Riomaggiore.  I am posting pictures taken the first night we were here, then today from a boat ride and hikes on the trails from each town.

Checked in & waiting at the aeroporto

So excited.  The day has arrived.  The final checked luggage weighed in at 30 lbs.  Hoped for less.  Blame it on electronics.

Sue and I are enjoying a Starbucks.  It’s true that we are earlier than need be, but overhearing someone close by us frantically calling because of a forgotten item makes us glad we are here and ready. 

We will be flying into Atlanta and then on to Milan.  So excited to find I have a window seat to Atlanta. 

Onward and upward!
