13 july 2001

Got a little interrupted last night, had to teach some people how to play poker.  We were having such a good time we also played some other games. Some people taught us how to play "Asshole".  We played until 1:30am or later.  These past few days I've been taking it easy, heading into Siena to update my web site, calling hostels and trying to take care of a few odds and ends.   I also did some foreign exchange so I could pay my bills here in Certaldo.  I also managed to get my train ticket today after some language problems.  We worked through the issues and I have my ticket from here to Torino.  The hostel may have a space for me as well, but I will see when I get into town.  Today when I made my way into town I had to buy a phone card. Unfortunately the damned thing didn't work to call the USA.  I managed to figure out how to make a collect call.  That worked a lot better so I traded my phone card in for one that would work in Italy.  That card managed to work, I used it to call the Torino hostel.  I also need to do some laundry, really bad, so hopefully in Torino.
