This morning we Carb-loaded via our host Franca. No protein at all was served! We waited for the infrequent bus to take us the 10 minutes drive to Manarola train station to catch the 10:17 train from Manarola (#2) to Vernazza (#3) It's a slow start to a long day, but the bus and train schedules don't allow for a much earlier start - except before 8. And that's when Franca serves breakfast. We decided we'll skip breakfast tomorrow and go find something more sensible in one ...
... 10 Euros you can take a boat trip around the lake, which we did, and spent a very pleasant hour checking up on the wildlife which included a sighting of an Osprey that had just caught a fish, and still had it between its talons.
On a recent Saturday evening, one of us was once again able to enjoy the pinnacle of cultural achievement in a splendid atmospheric setting, by going to a performance of some selected opera songs and arias in one of the churches in ...

... reputation of Australians was a bit unfair. We have occasionally caught the familiar accent quietly chatting around us. We have heard many very loud Americans, Germans and of course Italians. Tonight we sat next to a 2 Aussie girls, just off the plane who had had too much Prosecco before dinner. They were quite entertaining, but were a little bit Kath and Kim.
Monterosso has been absolutley beautiful. Tomorrow we head to Sorrento.
