Then iafter having been there some 2 hrs i wanted to go back to Genova to meet Rizal - my TB but... the train was cancelled! And u would never guess why... because of the strike, that would begin next day!!! LOL but it's just Italy hahaha
So i was waiting like a foul with dozens other ppl for the next one. When i arived in Genova main station Rizal was already there after making some visit in the city.
And i was right - just a normal beach, with no rocks hahahah - we had to pay 5euro but we could swimm!! What a great feeling - after the hot day in the city - chilling out in the nice sea! then we ate a pizza at the beach (it were maybe the smallest pizza in my life but it was ok, cuz i was hungry). In the evening we went back to our hostel i took my luggage and Rizal left his and we went back down to the city. He went to enjoy the night life and i went to the station to get my night train to Roma. And ... i have this adventure every time in Italy .
The very good thing with italian trains (the Espresso) is that their sits can be made to almost regular beds - which makes the compartment to one big bed. And ppl are always using this opportunity to get some sleep when traveling over night. But sometimes there are more passangers who wants to use the free places so they have to choose - or staying out of compartment or just ask for free place inside. as u can immagine i didn't find a place but there were some ppl sleeping in one of compartments so i just got in, asked if there is one place free and it was free of course more than just one, but one person had to put the sets back vertically - he was a bit irritated but ok. At one of the next station another guy was searching for place. He went inside - but the guy was scriming 'we are sleeping here' so the new one didn't give up and after few laudly spoken sentences he finnaly sat on his new free place. hahah and the other poor girls couldn't sleep that comfortable any more hahaha - sometimes i don't get the ppl. I can understand that every one wants to travel well, but it's not fair when i sleep and u have to stay on foot the whole night.
