Today is the last full day in Cortina. Where did the time go? It seems like we just arrived. I awoke to more snow and it doesn’t look like it is going to stop. This is a picture of the hotel.
We stopped in our favorite coffee shop and had coffee and strudel. This girl put up with us all week. When we first went in to this shop early in the week we asked for a Carmel Machiatto, which is one of my favorite drinks at Starbucks. She looked at us as if we were from another planet. Even though it is an Italian name it is probably just another American product devised to sound like authentic Italian. Oh well we had a good time in this coffee shop and she was very nice. What a babe!!!!!
We finally found a door open to the cathedral and let ourselves in. It is very large and beautiful. I hadn’t completely figured out how to use the camera in dark light yet so the first few pictures I took were somewhat dark.
Now I finally figured out the setting. I am getting more and more used to this camera now. Unfortunately I bought it expressly for this trip and am learning as I am going. These pictues are much better.
This is another picture of the dude standing next to the statue again. Only I was not about to sit down and get my tush soaked.
A picture taken on the Corsa Italia showing what the weather was like. It was still cold and snowing. Quite a difference from when we arrived. Needless to say no one was sunning themselves in the afternoon.
We ran into several of our group on the Corsa Italia. From left to right, Sue, Salley, Irma and Jack. In the second picture it is Jack, Sue, Salley, Irma and Joe. Fancy me you guys!!!!
WOW!!! Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in Cortina. AMAZING!!!!!
A scene of the bell tower on the Corsa Italia.
This is a major event that happened more times then we wish now that we are back home. GULP!!! I’m out of Euros AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN……!!!!!!!!!
The remaining pictures show both Randy and myself walking around in a blizzard waiting for the shops to open so we can spend some of those new Euros we just got. HA!! HA!!
It looks like Randy is the only one left on the Corsa Italia. Except for yours truly of course.
I found this on the sidewalk just a few stores down from our hotel. I have K2 skis so it caught my attention. I do not know what this means on the sidewalk. Big deal eh? Like who cares !!!!!
It was a fun day, although very cold and wet. We basically just hung out around the Corsa Italia. I did buy an Italian lottery ticket for one Euro. I figured I might strike it rich and pay for the whole trip and stay longer. HA!! HA!! Although I did hear that they were looking for the winner as he has never turned in his winning lottery ticket. If I could only figure out how they play their lottery.
