I arrived in London Tuesday evening.
Wednesday I walked down along the Thames past Westminster, then back through St. James Park and Hyde Park to the Science Museum.
Wednesday evening I flew to Rome, and Thursday morning I took the train to Venice, rented a car, and drove to Feltre.
I’m staying in the Centro Storico on a street that is 2 meters wide. The VW Golf I rented is 1.99 meters wide – it’s a tight sqeeze, but with the side mirrors folded in it just makes it.
On Friday, Sandro, Davide, and I drove around the mountains in the Sud Tyrol/Trentino Alto Adige, stopping at various points of interest – mostly places with gelato and espresso.
Yesterday I went hiking in Val Canzoi.
I almost made it to the top of the peak in the center of the above photo, but it became a little too steep for me. I was scrambling up a creek bed, but when I turned and looked down I realized it was more of a waterfall, and that I was several hundred feet up a pretty steep cliff. The view was outstanding and I could have taken a really nice photo if I hadn’t been too scared to let go with one hand, but I was, so I didn’t. Then when I made it down and looked back up, it really didn’t look that steep.
