The things I see
On Sunday, May 6, I was in Arezzo early to catch a train to Rome. (Sidenote: I will freely admit that I will drop in conversations “Next week when I am in Rome, I’ll…” I mean, come on, who else in the US that I know could say that) Back to why I was taking a train to Rome. My friend, Dinah, of the Dinah and Allen Fund was flying into Rome. She doesn’t always sleep on the flight over from Canada and feels more comfortable if someone else drives her from the Rome airport to her place near us in Tuscany. And I am a good choice for a driver. Her flight did not get in until after lunch but I had important shopping to do (see another post) so I was off early.
No, this is not my train. But it is pretty cool huh? A coal fired steam engine.
The engine along with 2 cars was starting from Arezzo for an excursion. I know of a steam train that leaves Siena and comes down to the truffle festival in Asciano in the fall. So it was something like that. But I don’t know exact details of this trip.
And the other strange thing I saw on that trip…
was this, on the side of a building as I was leaving Termini in Rome on the way to the airport.
Look for another post about my shopping.
