Spent the night at a campgrounds just south of Genova. I found the hills on my way – the camping is two kilometers above the primary road.
I stopped and asked a man if I was halfway there. The sweat was streaming down my face and stinging my eyes. He says “yes, yes” and then made a muscle with his arm and said, “You can do it. Strong like bull!”
Camping for one person is €6. It’s a sweet bargain for a safe place to stay. If you want to put up a tent it’s another €7. I asked the guy how that worked. “If you don’t have a tent and want to sleep under the stars, it’s still another €7,” he said.
They heard of Oprah, but not Ellen. They did not know what a Kardashian was and when I tried to explain Bruce “Caityln” Jenner, they really did think ‘crazy American.’
