I arrived in Riomaggiore, the smallest town in Cinque Terre, yesterday afternoon and I immediately met a local on the train. After a shower and chilling in my room with a view to die for, I met him for dinner and tour of the city.
My view was temporary as all of us were kicked to another room in a different part of town today. After dropping bags, I headed out on the 4 hour hike to Monterosso, the larger town with the good beach, not rocks like Riomaggiore. It kicked my butt but I'm not in as bad a shape as I thought after no running for a few months. It is spectacular here! I can't describe it really. You just MUST come here is all I have to say.
Internet is really spendy, so I'll keep this short for now and try to download one picture at least.
