Day 60 Pontremoli to Aulla:
Another long 30K+ day through the mountains.
About 5K from Aulla the path narrowed and veered between 2 homes where there was a water fountain. We stopped and soon a young Italian woman, Lena, came up and surprisingly started talking to Mika in fluent Japanese. This soon led to an invitation to her home and sit by a warm fire enjoying conversation about Japan over Japanese green tea.
The two of them had not been able to have a conversation in Japanese in about a year so were quite happy. A most enjoyable visit with Lena, her Mom and 4 kitties.
Bedded at San Caprasio Parish where two very friendly ladies met us with chocolate and water and helped us with accommodations for tomorrow.
