Bongiorno Argo supporters and grazie for your continued interest in the happenings of our voyage! Today we awoke early to hop on a bus and catch a train to a series of five coastal fishing villages known collectively as the Cinque Terre and recognized by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a top global sight. These picturesque towns are linked by footpaths that transverse ocean side cliffs and surrounded by cultivated terraces of grapes, olives and basil whose aromas waft sweetly down the trails baking in the Mediterranean sunshine. Although we feel very blessed to be able to experience such a global gem we are looking forward to welcoming back are repaired main sail and setting to the water once again. Ciao!
