We woke up at 0500 after what felt like a very deep sleep (for once) and quickly ate breakfast and drank the last of the coffee before making our way down to the rendezvous point at 0555. We loaded our bags onto the truck and sat back to admire the last of the sand dunes of Jeri as we bumped up and down over each uneven surface.

The show tonight was Opera Italiano, and it was spectacular, Sam and I (and many others) gave a standing ovation, we loved the singers and ...
