Of course, as expected, we awoke at 1am, 3am, 4am... By 5am, I gave up trying, and headed out to catch the early morning light! Genoa is a beautiful old port town, with enviable historical buildings, -but a major above-level highway running right through the waterfront area. Despite this division, the old city is still exotic and draws the tourists, although November is the off-season.
My dear old friend from 20+ years ago was able to come down from Milan this afternoon, so we had the most sumptuous dinner together! Lamb, Steak, pasta, Tiramisu. It had all the treats of Italy, and we waddled home satisfied and ready to sleep (Hopefully all night this time!) Tomorrow we head over to Savona to board our cruise ship. Internet there is going to be $10/hour, so blog posts will be less regular, most likely!
Hilary Slater: I write in the morning before I get out of bed. I write in the evening when the world is quiet. I write at Starbucks, where I can escape the household interruptions. But most of all I write in November, when NaNoWriMo inspires me!
