After the city council we had to get our Van fixed. Thanks for the great help!

Finally we visited once more the St. Clair Order in Pisa.

The nuns were extremely kind to us. We deeply enjoyed the peaceful athmosphere in the middle of the city...

...some students, who are stying in the monastery, joined in as well...

The nuns showed us their church and lit a candle with the flaming torch....

Soe of the nuns were from India. We spent a good time chatting...
