|Subject: WELCOME - New members in Pisa, Italy|
Covadonga said that we recruited Giorgio and Pierrana but here's the rest of the story: On a train headed for Pisa, we exchanged a few friendly words with this charming couple. It won't surprise those of you who know us that we asked for a recommendation as to where to have lunch. ;-) They suggested a trattoria but Pierrana said the food at their home is better. We thanked them, said goodbye and headed to the tourist office for a map. As we turned to leave the tourist office, Pierrana appeared and said come on, you're coming home with us for lunch. We were shocked, but thrilled, and throwing caution to the wind, climbed into their car for the 10K drive to their home in a nearby town. Pierrana served a beautiful lunch and then they took us on a tour of the surrounding area before heading into Pisa, which is amazing! Giorgio and Pierrana came to the Rome get-together last Saturday (a wonderful lunch graciously hosted by Ziner Giorgio, Hotel delle Muse) and we are delighted that these friendly people, who embody the spirit of Ziners worldwide, have joined our group.
