... to pick up Karin's mother who is coming to stay so I booked lunch for us at the Hermitage in the Col d'Eze which was a good choice as it was a beautiful setting and great food. A bit off the beaten track so a lot less crowded than anything on the coast and with easy parking. Karin and Mark took all the photos so I guess they will be for the next blog. Back to work on Monday but it's a short week again as Friday is a holiday, 15th August. Thank goodness for all these bank ...

... and so the train makes a quick stop then moves off leaving six of us stranded in the carriage thinking what do we do now. The next stop is Bellamo just a few KM's down the line and the Poms had moved to another carriage in shame. That leaves us and the all American young couple. We have no trouble getting the door open and get off. We seek options on how to get back to Varenna from the station attendant. Take the next train going back, no it ...

... line, but even so, Milano station is an experience. We join the throng of touristas trying to decipher the flashing boards announcing trains and platforms. Our first problem is that you need to know the final destination of your train, and we don’t. Look, there’s an official looking young man over there. He has a white shirt and a tie.
