Took a while to get everyone showered in the one bathroom so we headed off quite late. Raechel took us on a walking tour of "her" Bologna. We moved the car to the hotel parking and headed for the centre of town. Checked out the church in the main square and the community building and then went to the two towers. Bologna is known for its towers, each powerful family built one for protection. We then headed to Giardini Margherita, a park just outside the city gates, which was very pleasant and much cooler. We wandered around and checked out the turtles. Back in town we went to the markets and bought cheese, pasta, clams and wine. We walked back through the university and saw where Raechel had her classes. Back at Raechel's she cooked us pasta vongole (pasta with clams). It was very nice, but challenging as it was very hot and she had never cooked for that many people before! We left around eleven and the girls watched a movie together.
