Then there was the morning Ron couldn’t find his driver’s license. After turning the room upside down, we finally concluded that it was, in fact, lost. We were told to make a report at the police station which was just around the corner from our hotel. Afterwards, as a last hope, we stopped at the supermarket across the street to see if he had dropped it there. Success! One of the young clerks had found it and given it to his colleague to take to the police station. It was there the whole time Ron was making out the lost

|Our little Agriturismo in Levanto|
After several pleasant days in Rapallo, we drove to Levanto, just north of the Cinque Terre. On the edge of town is an Agriturismo (combination farm and B&B) run by a sweet young couple. They produce wine, grappa, olive oil and 32 different flavors of jams.

The highlight of this stop was hooking up with Monica and Lee in the Cinque Terre town of Vernazza. We met last March at a retreat we all attended in Temecula, California. We had discovered that they too were homeless and doing an extended overseas trip. This was the closest we would come to crossing paths. What fun it was to see familiar faces and trade stories -- not to mention speaking English without charades!
