Left San Miniato at 8.30?, 26k plus to go should hit Giambassi at 4.30 which I did.  Seems awfully slow but the terrain was up and down, gosh Joss you were right it is upsy downsey but it is pretty when it is not pissing with rain and the track is not a creek.

After a disturbed night, suspect rotting king fish carpacio, it was whiffy.  Have finally clicked on this half board rubbish versus a la carte.
If they give both in a hotel Do Not Touch the half board, it is a synonym for past its use by date. If they only have half board or a set menu you are safe…

In the past I have negotiated two mediocre courses for one a la carte..  Actually I am quite keen for the day they will not do this when I will have both, but pay for the one I want and let the dishes pile up…mmmmm.

Walking, NO RAIN well not until 4.20pm!   Pleasant walk as stated up and down, then hit mud like I have never seen it, how could so few people do this….

Yesterday must have been awful, well it was awful where I was…. Have a pikkie to prove it…
In a twee b and b that T would hate…the room pongs of wet boots.

Saw swissy this am, leaving San Miniato, head down thank heavens…
Short 14 k tomorrow…bit stuffed but holding up….
