We reluctantly leave La Spezia and head south to the Tuscan/Maremma Coast and Porto Santo Stefano. Deciding we had best do the good tourist thing and detour via Pisa we are taken with another surprise. Pisa is actually quite a nice town. University people everywhere with the Uni scattered throughout the town in a variety of buildings, lovely really. The river is wide and powerful, as all in the area, with delightful buildings wall to wall on ...
... any food, no milk for coffee (this is the real disaster!) and no dinner. What to do you ask? Well when you are traveling abroad you have to plan ahead for these little problems. I didn't.

Surrounded by double layers fo walls, the walled city is shaped as a hexagon, with towers that are shaped like arrows at each corner. Since Grossetto ...
... at the poor conductor about their poor management and service and everyone applauds him in the end... Finally another train comes by and I hop aboard, arriving in Grossetto late at night, where I have to walk quite a ways to reach the edge of town and find a suitable place for camping. My first spot has very high grass and a lot of bugs, so I continue on. Maybe I should've picked a smaller town for camping out next ...
