This evening, we got our first introduction to Lucca and met the rest of our group, went to an informal dinner at a local restaurant, then retired early to make up for the challenge of sleeping on the plane. I actually dreamed -- about flying -- but I think Jim only rested.
|Entry Gate to Lucca -- this is actually an interior|
gate. Our hotel is inside the wall, but outside this
gate. Tomorrow we learn why.
|Narrow streets decorated for Christmas in the|
old town. Very busy tonight because the 8th is
an Italian religious holiday.
