But back to the nice people. We had a few relaxing moments with Ilian and Elizabet on their upper terrace. They are so sweet! On the way over, I came across a band (cute uniforms, again!) getting ready to start a march.

Goodbye to Benedetta and Magherita in the Piazza. All these tourists were wandering around, no doubt wondering why the family was all crying.
And then goodbye to Massimo. And Cristina. And Tiziana. Can you believe it? They'd made a tart especially for us. And they gave a discount on the pizza besides. They were so incredibly kind. We miss them terribly, and they're only a few hours from us.

Now we're in a little town called Torca on the coast near Sorrento, in this beautiful house that my parents rented. It has a really bright, Portuguese-type tiles on the floor, bright white walls, and blue accents. It's very tropical and pretty. We'll be staying here on the coast for about a week: Friday we return to Rome (near the airport), and we'll leave the next morning for Atlanta.
