Padova… Or Padua for Anglos

Wow! This segment of the trip was really nice! It is raining and grey in northern Italy and all of the small mountains in this region are shrouded in fog. I dozed for a bit and awoke to fellow passengers speaking Japanese. For a split second I was transported back to my younger days, traveling to the small town of Ushimado on the Seto inland sea.

Next stop, Osaka.. Er… Venice Mestre then onto Venice itself!
