We made it to Lucca around sundown on Saturday evening. First thing we did was try to find a hotel room and get some din din. We looked on the web site for the race and they recomended a hotel called the Gina Hotel. It was about 18km away from town (which is in the first photo).
It was a cool hotel, dinner was ok... the fun started after we started to get into bed.
Robyn was in the bathroom brushing her teeth when she peeped out the window and lo and behold... two ears appeared, then a Meoooow.....
Dan was in the bedroom looking out the room window when all of a sudden he heard a low moan come from the bathroom and out came robyn with the most mischeivious face and look in her eye... she was death gripping a cat...!!!
We named her Gina after the hotel, and although she only stayed with us a short time in the hotel it was nice.
On monday she came back and rubbed on our feet while we waited for our taxi home.
The race went well. it was a sunny day and we had fun. Robyn placed first in her race and won a bottle of pickled onions.
The second photo is of a bridge on the race course. kind of cool bridge.
We went home on Monday afternoon and all in all it was a good trip.
