After yesterdays R&R we spent today exploring Lucca. We hired bikes and rode around the top of the city’s wall and climbed the clock-tower in the centre which provided lovely views across the city centre and surrounds.

We also ditched the shaggy-chic look we had both been sporting and got our hair cut. Giuseppe from Mazzotti Hair Design was very friendly and was particularly excited to give Brodie a youthful European style cut. The English he knew was from following the music and lives of the Beatles and through his music performance - and as a parting gift Giuseppe gave us some CD recordings of his Beatles covers along with a number of other tunes.
