So as per the recommendation of the Owen WIlson look a like we met on the Paris metro we are headed out to Cinque Terre today. Its a group of 5 little villages along what is supposed to be some of the most beautiful coast line in the world. The hike is long but you can go swimming in the Meditteranian (spelling?) whenever so thats cool.
We met this couple from Nashville yesterday who were as lost as we were trying to find the only hostel in Genoa which is at the top of a huge hill. Side note: Italian bus drivers are not to be triffled with, they hurtle down streets barely big enough for one bus and squeeze past busses going the other way. All the while with scooters shooting through the middle. But this couple, Kenny and Sarah, were going to Cinque Terre too so the four of us hung out all day yesterday and are heading out this morning, they are also heading out to Rome tonight so everything seemed to work out nicely.
Let me know whats going on back in the States, I was saying to Jack it's weird that we have no idea whats happenening in the world that we are familiar with.
