Rapallo is making it very hard to leave. After the terrible rains and devastating floods the weather has become sunny, warm, in a word, perfect. But we know winter is coming, so it is time to pack up our gear and head to warmer climes. I’m just glad we don’t have to carry our home with us as the plains Indians used to do. Now that would be complicated.

We’ll report from the other side in a week or two. Meanwhile, I hope the sun is shining on you, too.
