We woke up pretty early today as we had to get the bus to La Spezia at 8:07. We all did some last minute packing, checked out and got on the bus. It was a shortish ride but the bus dropped us a good ten minute walk from the station, so we frantically oriented ourselves and got going. We stopped briefly for a pastry each on the way and ended up making it to the station in good time. We ran into Michael on the platform, who was going to marseille but had to get the same train as ...

It wasn't a bad view actually, but after standing stock still, shoulder to shoulder for a half hours race I was already getting sore feet. There was no way I could keep that up for 6 hours.

We then grabbed the open air tour bus to see the other sights of Monaco including the Palace of the Grimaldi family. They actually secured the principality of Monaco around 1200 & something after fleeing Genoa. The very smart Grimaldi king of the time took over the castle by dressing all his troops as Monks and gaining entry to the castle on religious ...
