We only had three things organised for today! Activity 1 was a walking tour through Capri, the town. Our guide for today was Willie. Willie's mother was English and his father was Italian. He, like so many of the guides we have had, was a bit of comedian. He would inform us of the history of a particular path, who created it and for whom, and why we know the family and then he would move on to another item until you realised that he was telling a shaggy dog story.

We walked the streets that were walked 2000 years ago. The streets were lined with remains ...
... all along. It ends up that Spain was just too good and Italy lost 4-0. Apparently, it was great that they were even in the finals, but still not so great that they lost. However, the Italians, ever gracious, complimented Spain on the fact the they were "forte." It is time to go to sleep. It has been a big day. Looking forward to tomorrow - not sure what the plan is but whatever it is I am sure it will be great. Ciao for ...
