Tuesday, June 27 - finally, the pool was open - WHAAAT!? Had just a short swim, 1,250 followed by a 40 minute trainer ride. Luca had never seen Office Space. Mission accomplished ;) He later cooked me an authentic Italian dinner (isn't every dinner IN Italy with Italian ingredient authenticate???) while I prepared his bike for travel.
