Where I stayed
Same yucky place

Flag of Italy  , Italian Riviera,
Thursday, September 8, 2011

today we made it up, had croissants and cappuccino in the water, and then hiked from vernazza to monterosso. I was pretty tough, but with very rewarding views. We left early to avoid crowds but as we approached monterosso we were overcome with many French tourists all geared up for the hour and a half hike with poles, backpacks, and all sorts of unnecessary fancy gear. We rolled into monterosso, had some very yummy pesto bruschetta and wndered around looking for a better place to sleep that night. After wasting two hours on this fruitless activity, we gave up and hit the beac h. Oh well, another night in toothless man's apartment.

We came back and wandered vernazza and watched these Italian teenagers let the waves bring them up on a concrete wall like seals. It seemed very dangerous, but they made it look easy and fun. I read and Trent hiked backed u p pretty high for some evening pictures of the village. We ate at the same restaurant with the best waiter ever. Trent ordered a dish, and he told Trent 'NO!' I will bring you something better. He was fine with my selection though. He had been our bus boy the night before so he kind of knew our tastes. Well he was right! Trent loved his dish, it was a very flavorful pasta with olive oil and herbs and mussels. We dont always like mussels but they were AMAZING. Just so you know, it is a pain to capitalize in this thing, so when I do it I really mean it! Then he brought us deserter which we didn't ask for but we loved. He was fun and a real comedienne. He made the meal.

Last night in gross apt. Yippee!!!!!!! We left ASAP the next morning never to see toothless medio again.
