After 6:15am Mass we got on the bus to go to Monte Cassino. The Abbey for the Benedictines is there. We went up the mountain to the Abbey and had a great tour. The story of the rock is that St. Benedict fell and God made the rock soft so his arm print is there. St. Scholastica liked doves and when she died St. Benedict saw doves.

Here I took a motor-taxi (which was a terrifying experience) to cave lodge, a really cool hostel in the middle of the jungle where you can stay for 3€ a night. After a couple of hours of doing nothing I joined some people to take a bamboo raft into these crazy caves with gigantic stalagmites and stalactites and hundereds of bats.
