San Marino .. 5th smallest county in the world and yes it’s an independent country NOT Italy .. Had lovely colourful stamps in my collection as a child .. So we went there .. Past Rimini on the left , turned inland and up and up and up … After a few miss starts at parking Hetty was installed in the carpark by the Funicular( cable car) and up and up we went .. About 3k above sea level …and very pretty ..Disney style Castle … Not much character.. But still very sweet city … With Christmas shop and carols .. Yuck .. And gun shops … and then who the hell is this … Police cars and armed out riders in the tiny square and a guy having a coffee at the tiny restaurant .. More Jack Baur type men in suits with machine guns .. Still no idea who they were protecting … Looked American …

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
