– Italy 12

Hi everyone!  I arrived here in Cinque Terre (the 5 little fishing villages) along the Ligurian coast (SE of Genoa) yesterday afternoon from Interlaken, Switz.  I was very sad to leave Switz. because it was as close as heaven could be!  Today I will be hiking the Cinque Terre…about 5 hours along the sea (if I can make the whole thing…I HAVE gotten stronger!), then back to the dorm in Manarola for a good rest.  It is also incredibly beautiful here, and this is where I will be sadly leaving Italy tomorrow morning, going along the coastline into France, and then arriving in Valencia on Monday about noontime.  I will be very sad to leave Italy, with all its craziness & beauty.  It has a place in my heart forever!  I just cannot explain it enough in words!  I must close & catch the little inter-village train.  Take care!  Miss you all, but having SUCH a good time!!  Ciao, ciao!  Love, Mama/Donna
