Today we are in Livorno Italy, a small town on the edge of the Mediterranean. This morning we took a shuttle into the town and did a lot of walking. It is surrounded by an ancient wall and moat but has a modern downtown area. We happened on a parade of the naval academy with representatives from many countries marching. The weather was better today; sunny, cool enough for a light jacket, very pleasant. This evening there is a violinist performing;the picture shows us in the dining room on the ship.
