This little view was the scene outside
our hotel window in Santa Cruz. The restaurant across the street from the
Hotel Italia served simple sandwiches and was connected to a small artisan
shop. I recommend the hotel, by the way: the accomodations are simple yet
clean, priced adequate ($15-20/night), and continental breakfast is included--
fresh juice, tea and pastries. If you're lucky, you'll even get the view
from this room...
