The local tourist agent at the Hospitality desk on board gave us a map to the train station and said that it was about a 20 minute walk or we could take a bus. We decided to walk....we got to the location she circled for us on the map only to discover that there was no train station there. We walked around in circles for a bit and finally asked for directions. That was interesting in itself, what with our minimal knowledge of Italian, and theres of English, but eventually we figured out that we were still about 3kms away from the train station. So we hopped on a bus. Apparently you are supposed to buy the bus tickets in advance, but we had no idea so the driver let us on for free
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is very cool. It was a complete tourist area though...the rest of the town was dead except for this area. We tried taking pictures of us holding the tower up but I don't think they turned out to well. We would have gone up the tower but we only had about 20 minutes there before we had to start heading back to the ship. We did make it back though without getting lost!
Tonight is crew bingo again...think I can win twice in a row? I'm also going to dye Sarita's hair tonight...yikes, this could be interesting!
I haven't been able to upload pictures lately because the Systems Manager had to fix something on my computer the other day and he must have done something to the settings because I can't access my camera anymore...so I'm going to have to borrow someone else's computer for a bit to get to my pics.
Talk to you soon!
