train and wallets and also some cats

We took a train back from Reggio thursday night. We boarded the train about 8pm. we then sat on the train for two hours while they messed around underneath it. The a/c wasnt on so the temperature rose to over 100 in the cabin. the train had been sitting in the sun all day not in use(night train). so we were cramped in our little bunk bed with two bikes and our bags in our laps sweating profusely. Robyn has been getting morning sickness and wasnt feeling great. We were releived when they finally got the train underway and we took off on our 12 hour trip.

Dan Fell asleep rite away on the top bunk and Robyn on the bottom. We opened the window cause the a/c sucked. The train was an hour late getting to bologna...
We carried all our stuff back about 20 blocks to Max's apartment. Then we looked for our wallet to go and buy some food. that is when we discovered the wallet was gone.

Dan then went to the police station and filed a stolen wallet, then to the train station to see if it showed up anywere. Luckily... it showed up !!!! someone found it and turned it into the customer care office in Venice. So Dan jumped on a train to Venice and upon retreival he jumped back on the home bound train.
Dan's total train time : 21.5 hrs
Robyns total train time: 13.5 hrs

when we finally got back to bologna the temperature was 35, in fact its hot all over europe now. Nobody here has a/c so we are really sweaty!!!
Well take care everyone... here is a pic for you.

I would be out of my mind in the heat!!! I'd much rather be in the cold, cause then you can wrap up in a blanket or take a hot bath...
Can't wait to see you!!
