Roma, Florence and Cinque terra

sunny

Friends and Family,

Don't worry, I'm still alive! It's been a jam packed week full of adventures. Since this internet cafe is ridiculously expensive. I'll make this one quick. Enjoy the pretty pictures.

I picked up Jamie from the Fiumocino airport on Monday and explored Rome and the Vatican for a couple of days.

(Rob/Pete/Phil, the Pope gave the I a shout out and I think a blessing)

We then headed to Florence where the gelato was flowing and the italians were dancing after their victory over France.

After Florence and it's abundance of annoying cats. We took the car above and ventured over to Cinque Terra which in English means the Five lands and for our friends down south its called cinco terra. We actually planned to stay here one night and ended up staying for 3 nights. These towns were absolutely beautiful. After a gruelling 7 mile hike across all five towns Jamie and I found a beach, swam in the salty Mediterranean and fell asleep on the beach. Enjoy...

Unfortunatley we have ran out of the space for pictures on this blog. The good news is that i get a fresh start on the first of the month so you wont be hearing from us for about a week.

Jamie and I are now headed to Nice, Monaco, Marseille, Barcelona and then Paris.

Till next time,

Jamie and Diego

That car is awesome! You should trade in the Peruburu when you get back for one of those. By the way, while you two are sitting around on the beaches doing nothing, why don't you get off your butt and practice a little OTL! We only have 3 weeks!

Yo you need to adjust your fantasy roster. LaRoche either needs to be activated or dropped. Hope all is going well over there.
