PisaOur dear friend, Bella (Dolly Goolsby) is on the go again, this time in Italy. She has graciously allowed us to republish her travel blogs. Enjoy!

Once again, we have been very busy. Saturday we took the train to Pisa. Massimo Carli, our Italian landlord, met us at the train station, and gave us a guided walking tour through the city of Pisa, to the Field of Miracles.

Once we got to the Field of Miracles, Kiri and Patrick climbed to the top of the Leaning Tower. Massimo took the rest of us on a guided tour through the Duomo, the Baptistry and the Cemetery, which is in a huge marble building. All of these structures are amazingly beautiful. And the green lawns around the buildings are reported to be the finest lawns in all of Italy.

We were fortunate with the weather. We had lovely sunny skies right up until the time we were almost ready to leave. We found a nice trattoria nearby, and had a nice lunch. By the time we were finished with lunch, the rain had stopped. We leisurely walked back to the train station, and from Pisa we went to Viareggio. Magda was waiting for us in the Carli apartment. We had a lovely dinner with them, then we took the train back to Florence, getting there about 11:00 p.m.

It had been a long day, and we were all tired, but what a great day we had.
