Day 6: All time low

by kangarooseamstress

Yesterday was bad.

We got to the station only to find that the Italian train service had gone on strike. We sat in McDonalds for a couple of hours, researching how best to get over the border into France. We considered flying, taking a cab, a bus, everything. I ran to a bus stop about two kilometres away from the station to find that it was closed. We had no options.

Eventually Khalil and David managed to find a bus that went all the way to Lyon. It cost us €40 each. We then had to get a train from there to Marseille. It was a very long day.

The others went out to watch the World Cup final and I watched it in the apartment. My sandals broke, the game was under par. It was not a great day.
