Day 294 2 hrs, 3.4 kms I thought I could catch a train from Bra on east to Asti, but no... I have to backtrack a long ways and make a big looparound unfortunately. This really sets me behind and I suddenly realize that if I'm going to visit both Asti and Allessandra provinces today, I'm going to have to make this a very short visit. ...

Day 294 2 hrs, 3.6 kms Of course I've got to check out a town with a name like this! I get off the train just as high school students get out for lunch break and join a crowd of them in a doner shop for a sandwich shop. Nice town to wander around in, with part of the city up on a ridge, with some castle like homes... and yes, you can buy a bra in Bra, in case you were ...

Day 294 3 hrs, 1.7 kms Now it's time to head east completing my Piedmont loop. I've still got two more provinces to do, but I should still be able to squeeze a couple towns along the way.

"People are quite religious here" she goes on to tell me about the religious trips she has gone ...

... problem I had in Novara trying to find a spot where I can make it the back drop for my official Torino Parkbench video clip... finally I gave up and end up using some cool Roman ruins nearby instead. I take my time ambling from one in of the historical district to another... through the cozy narrow alleys... through the park alongside the castle walls... along the grand boulevards leading to pompous statues in the middle of traffic circles. One ...

Day 292 7 hrs, 3.3 kms Day Totals: 16 hrs, 11.6 kms I need to visit at least one non-provincial capital town today, so I get off at a random stop. Chivasso was a good choice. Nothing super special about it, just a long wide street packed with locals strolling ...
