... train we saw yesterday was absolutely packed. Lucky for us the race finished and streets reopened right when we wanted to leave, so we had no trouble getting out. If we'd had an earlier flight we'd have been screwed! The taxi drove so fast (but still got honked at for slowing down at speed bumps), and we got to the airport in no time.

We didn't have the energy to go too far away from the hotel for our dinner so we went to an Italian place across from the hotel.
We had pizzas with crazy toppings. Mine had mustard, leek, smoked chicken, mushroom, onion, cream cheese and bacon on it. I wouldn't have thought of putting a leek on a pizza, but it was bloody nice.
