Three Days on the Cinqueterre

After the class was over Liz and I rented a car and drove up to the Cinqueterra--a bit north of Pisa on the northwestern Ligurian Coast. Travel Guide, Rick Steve's ranks the Cinqueterra as the third place to see after Rome and Florence. We totally agreed. We were fortunate to get to room with a balcony facing the ocean. Liz and I did nothing but take a walk in the morning, lie under a big umbrella and eat delicious Italian food. Pesto was actually invented in the town we stayed in--Monterosso. After three nights we had to leave so we stopped off at Pisa to try to straighten out the leaning tower. All in all, it was a great trip.

This morning I'm in Charlotte, NC with Forest Hill Church who are part of a leadership community for externally focused churches.
