Sarah and I had just missed the last bus, so we were hell bent on not missing this one. We ended up standing in the back staircase. We managed to put Sarah's suitcase in the undercarriage of the bus, but I was still wearing my bags. Well, what we did not realize is that the bus would still be picking up people and we were stuck in ...
... spoke very little Italian. He spoke no English, but apparently knew some Italian sign language. We were able to communicate a bit, by simplifying our sign language and playing a small game of charades. Italian sign language is so different to American and French, so it is not so easy to communicate in those two languages. I was a little uncomfortable talking to a complete stranger who was an older man, but he was really kind and seemed so excited to try to ...
