Oh: and at the train station we also talked for a bit with this sweet sweet older white-haired lady from Georgia on her way to Siena with her husband. She called Joi and me her "angels" because we told her where to store her luggage on the bus and where to get off in Siena. She told us she was on a "grand adventure." When we told her we're going to Venice and Rome next, and that Joi and Eric are then off to Naples and Palermo, she said, "Oh, you're on a grand adventure, too!" She asked why I had luggage with me (since we had told her we were waiting for Joi's boyfriend). When I waved my hand and said, "I just bought that to carry all my new shoes home in," she squealed in delight and wanted to know all about them.
