Sunday March 13
Rainy day today, but not cold. I love it here. Had a chocolate croissant and peach tea at the Blue Marlin for breakfast. Walked all around town enjoying the views and taking pictures. Visited the harborfront church and the remains of a castle "Castello Doria" with the best views of the town. The little shops are adorable and the people here are very nice. I bought some natural lemon soap to try out. I want to send a box of olive oil, balsalmic, pasta, lemoncello back to the US tomorrow. I had a late lunch at Trattoria del Capitano. House vino rossa, risotto with seafood, amazing bread and a rich chocolate pie/cake for dessert. I don't think I'll be needing dinner tonight! Haha. Chao
Lessons learned: It is fun to go slowly through all of the stairs and paths here. People moving too quickly actually stand out. I like "Slow-Down Cinque Terre."
Tomorrow Plans: I want to take the train to explore some of the other 4 towns in the Cinque Terre. Hopefully it won't be raining as much.
