“Another day of pure vacation as we head to Genoa . . . one of our takeaways brings us to remembering Eddie Izzard talking about Europe “where the old stuff is.” Meandering up the slow road, hugging the coast, reminds me of 101 in California, and our precious Mission system (which we don’t take care of!) Here, I could spend a week sketching in every tiny town, noteworthy gorgeous ‘in-use’ buildings and spend a year just from Marseille to Genoa! Menton, one of the last places as we headed out this morning!”
Guys I don’t know if my personal thoughts were clear enough. We have little ‘old stuff’ in he USA and we don’t care much about it. Here they have so much ‘old stuff’ google barely knows about it! I tried to find the name of the church above the blue striped awning I sketched below and could not. It simply did not show up on any map!

From my journal: “Stopped about an hour from Genoa to eat and walk here. I want to call this the cake church, because it looks like a frilly edged cake. Antipasta, a pasta I’ve never seen before stuffed with cheese, and desserts to go. . . On to Genoa!”
