Woke up in the morning to torrential rain and hoping that it will blow over by the afternoon so that we can go into town again.  Had a lovely breakfast in the room and we all got ready to go out.  So tired and its danielles last day so was hoping that the weather was going to be a little bit better but it seems that they have brought the wather with them from England.  Danielle wants to go and do some cshopping so we are going into the town again to see if we can get her some nice things with the money that she has brought with the.  She managed when we got into town blag a street seller who wanted 5 euro for an umbrealla only to give him 2 she should be with us all the time so that we can get some cheap deals.

It was raining so much that we had to shelter in a little coffee shop with hot chocolates then finally the weather started to turn for the better so off we went towards the tower again so dan could buy some little bits and pieces.  She got a really cool hoody with Univercity of Pisa written on the front of it and some other nice things like a denim shirt and some scarves and stuff.  After trecking round for ages we tried to find somewhere to eat but it was impossible unless we went back to the Tower and it was quite a walk so we decided to go and walk to the bus station and head back to close to our hotel to get something to eat.  There was only a couple of places open so we settled on the fish place on the front and ordered loads of food.  For starters we had some antipasta which is lots of different cooked meats one of which we where convinced was about 10 years old but Georgie tried it and said it was like bacon!  Danielle was really adverturous and ordered some fish pasta and it came out with huge prawns still with the heads and tails on something that would normally make her sick but she ate it with no complaints, Georgie had pizza, Ian had a seafood rissoto and I had gnochi with prawns it was really tasty the only annoying thing with Italy is that they charge you to breathe in places you have to pay a cover charge of 2 euro per person and that made nearly 8 quid with the 4 of us on top of every meal that you eat which I find really cheeky if you would like to leave a tip then that should be your choice and if they need to make extra money then they should put the food prices up to reflect this I just felt like I was being ripped off a little which is disapointing as I like Italy.

Anyways it was back to the room as we have to get up at 4am as Danielle and Georgie are getting an early flight back to the UK boo hoo think I want to steal danielle and not let her go home.  We spent the evening packing things and generally just messing around.  I got a bit upset over the fact that I am not sure I can go to Greece in Jan and leave Danielle for so long but we had a really cool chat and worked out a plan so that I can go and she can come and stay and not be apart for that long.
