Maria noticed something very interesting - the women here don't really wear any make-up save for some lip gloss and mascarra. It is definitely paying off, as they all have beautiful skin. No, Maria actually mentioned that. Oh, and 95% of them wear boots of some sort.

The weather is very pleasant; we walked next to the beach at 11:30pm and it was 17 degrees outside - not bad for going into winter. We had short sleeved shirts on, while the locals all wore jackets. They must read rule no 5 of cycling.

We had to walk back to the airport, as the last bus was at 9:30pm. It was a very nice 2,6km walk - at 1 in the morning - and it allowed us to see a bit more of the city. Okay, okay - the truth is that I was not going to pay €10 to be driven 2 km. Nothing wrong with a bit of exercise! The city is beautiful, with a nice mix of new and old architecture. Still quite a few old buildings around - almost looks like old university dorm rooms. Someone did mention that accommodation is very expensive. Will post some pics later.

And yes, I am writing this at 3:30 in the morning, as we are waiting for our connecting fligt, and we cannot sleep.

Oh yes, bought a vodafone data card for €15, and you get 10 hours of airtime with no cap. Will do the same when we get to Rome.
