Abruptly HomeWell, this was madness. Because of several unstable factors, due to Italian culture—train strikes, reneging of room reservations—Dr. and Mrs. Taylor decided it would be a bad choice for them to stay in Florence with Justin and me for our weekend trip as planned. Everyone else was heading back to Riva, loading the bus at 8:45—so we had to choose fast whether we were going back with everyone on the bus or staying. We decided to go, and it’s a good thing we were already packed! We raced to the bus (calling the hostel to change plans and wrong turn included) and made it to the bus, barely). Then we were on our way back to Riva. We stopped at Autogrill for lunch and had food (yay—hardly had any breakfast) and came on back. For the afternoon, I went up to the Pab and unpacked and just piddled around getting rested up. The Taylors had invited us to dinner because Justin and I weren’t on the schedule to eat at the Casa, and we met them for a smashing dinner of, yes, pizza with egg at a local restaurant. Highly delicious. Then Justin and Dr. Taylor went back to the Casa while I stayed and chatted with Mrs. Taylor for a long time. I got to know her a lot better. :) It was a good talk. Then I went back to the Casa, did internet stuff, and went to bed a little while later.
