Allyson's sister and her husband visited us this week, and the four of us went up to the Cinque Terre for a couple days. On Monday we hiked from Corniglia to Vernazza, a four-kilometer trek through woods and over a mountain. About thirty minutes into the hike, we suddenly encountered four cats on the trail. They were very excited to see us. Apparently they thought we would feed them. Alas, we had no cat food on us. So, if you ever happen to hike this particular trail, you might want to bring some along!
