We're finally in Trieste! Got up 5 am this morning to take the *early* morning euroexpress train to Venice and then on to Trieste. When we arrived in Venice we got news that there was a strike going on, and that we would have to find another way to get to the competition. No rental cars available, no bus, no flights and only a slight chance to get a seat on a later train. We opted for a car with driver which cost us 230 euros. He got us to Trieste FAST. Most of the time we were crusing at 170 kilometres an hour!
After a quick shower at the hotel we went down to the site. Very nice location. I talked to luigi lupi, bronwen serna, jeoren, eirik, tim and many more. We've just been to a cocktail party and talked to even more people. Everybody is so nice. I am having a great time. Highlight of the day was to talk to bronwen serna and phung. Supernice people.
