Five from Lucca
It seems hard to believe that it has already been a year since I visited the Lucca Games and Comics Show in Tuscany. Lucca is an amazing and beautiful old walled city, and my Italian fans are truly amazing. And now two of them have brought back a few memories with this photo. They write:
"Although with more than a year of late, we are proud to send you this picture from Lucca Games 2005, when we won the costuming contest with A Song of Ice and Fire characters. At that time, we were so happy that you were there to witness our victory (we even thought to present you the cup, but after the signing session we weren't able to find you in the crowd).
In the picture, frome left to right you have: Daenerys Targaryen, Eddard Stark, Rhaegar Targaryen, young Robert Baratheon, and Sansa Stark.
We hope you enjoy this, and that you'll be proud of us.
Andrea "Rhaegar" and Elettra "Sansa", from Italy."
Congratulations on your victory. I'm pleased that my books helped inspire you. And thanks again for all the wonderful Tuscan hospitality. I hope to visit Italy again one day soon.
