Trying to Leave Manarola, Cinque Terre and Stuff

Here is a picture I took at our apartment before I had a shower or hair washed. I was cooking dinner and decided to give the old water heater one more try. This time, as long as I didn't try to turn on the radiators, I got the hot water to work! It is on a timer so the hot water was supposed to last 9 minutes. I threw off my clothes faster than if Johnny Depp was waiting in the bedroom for me. What a great feeling - my first shower in almost a week - and hair washed. I should have taken an "after" picture.

As to my health, I felt much better this morning. My sister thought I was having a reaction to the antibiotic and I'm thinking that might have been the problem. Thank goodness!

I had to take Seymour out of his napping place in my suitcase and packed and left by about 9:15 am this morning. I got to the train station and guess what - trains cancelled again. I walked back through the tunnel to my regular bar and had a cappuccino. It looks like there will be a train at 11:17 am so now we are sitting at the station, waiting. My vadafone SIM is working great here but I still won't download my other blogs with lots of pictures until I get to Livorno. You never know when it will stop working.

  1. I can post a comment again! I'm glad you are feeling better and I hope you were able to get your train to Livorno. If you start to get sick again go see a physician. You can get a list of English speaking physicians from the American Embassy. Take care. Love, Sharon and Art

  2. I love the picture!! And I'm glad that you are feeling better. Betty and I have been worried about you! Please take care and go
    to a doctor or hospital if you even think for a second that you might need to go. It's not worth risking it ...mary

  3. Your hair is SO short! Cute! And you look thinner--be it from being sick or all the exercise you're getting. -Shannon
