Guys, I’m in Italy! And man, is it ever beautiful. I am living in Genoa (also sometimes called Genova), and I can see the Mediterranean Sea from the porch of my house. Yeah, I can’t believe it either.
I walked down through the narrow, zigzagging streets to the marina today, but haven’t had a chance yet to actually visit the beach. Genoa is a very important port city for Italy so there are lots of industrial areas, buildings, piers, and boats on the water, making for not a lot of beach. I think you have to go a little ways to either side of the city to actually find sand. All I know is, I love, love, love living by the sea. It is so beautiful and looks like it goes on forever, but somehow makes me feel closer to everywhere in the world.
Here are a few peeks at the city- I’ll have more to report soon!
