so on wednesday afternoon nick and i took a bus from pula croatia back to trieste italy.  it turned out to be a very scenic route...hugging the coastline headed north to trieste.  there were many magnificant views.  and to my suprise the croatians grow grapes for wine.  we saw plenty of fields of grapes...almost looked like home :)  when we got to the boarder of slovenia and the boarder patrol came on...he took a mexican guy, mine and nick's passports to go do i don't know what.  it took like 25 mins and was kinda annoying.  it was definitely strange thinking that if something happened i wouldn't know where to call.  its not like the EU...i don't even know if we have an embassy in slovenia.  but everything worked out ok and we were off...only 30 mins later than scheduled, and we ended up missing our train out of trieste...but we just caught a later one.  so then the train from trieste to venice...we kinda slept, but it was a late train and nearly empty minus two guys who kept walking past we were kinda not trying to go to sleep...didn't wanna get ripped off.  again everything was fine when we arrived in venice.  we had about 4 hours to kill, so we joined the others like us and slept right outside the station...with the canal to our feet, and nick and i were fortunate enough to barely be able to see the stars, as the overhang didn't cover us :) nicks train to milan left at 5 and he was off to interlocken switzerland.  my train didn't come till 640...first to rome then change trains in naples. so nick and i parted ways after about 6 weeks traveling together...we might meet sometime in italy...but if not, we'll meet at the airport in athens.
