Here Comes The Rain, Again.

rain 68 °F

We did get decent weather on our last full day in Trento, meaning that it didn't rain until evening. My husband had to attend conference sessions, but he was able to take a lunch break with us. We visited a supermarket for bread, prosciutto, and snacks and took everything with us in the cable car up the mountain. We ate our picnic lunch on a park bench overlooking the Alps. It was beautiful!


My daughter and I also spent some time outdoors while my husband was working. We checked out a farmers' market/art festival at the park across the street from our hotel.

Unfortunately, we woke up the next day to--you guessed it--more rain. Our first thought was to do some laundry since we couldn't be outdoors, but no laundromats were open because it was Sunday. We hung out in our room for a while and packed. Luckily, the rain let up, so we got some lunch, checked out, and headed over to the station to catch our train to Verona.

Once we got to the station in Verona, we remembered the reason why we had such a hard time finding accommodations: a One Direction concert. There were young girls everywhere, decked out in t-shirts and bandannas. We even saw a horde of them waiting outside near the Arena.

After settling in our apartment, we popped some laundry in the wash and walked to a medieval bridge.


It rained some more, but at least the shower was brief. When we returned, we found out that the detergent capsule hadn't dissolved in the machine, so we ran it again and went to dinner. When we returned, we saw that the soap had dissolved, but that the clothes were waterlogged even though I had set the machine to maximum spin. We had to wring everything out at the kitchen sink before hanging it to dry. When we wrung some items out, soap came out along with the water; our soap capsule may have dissolved, but it was never fully rinsed away. This was not a good development, as we still had plenty of other things that needed washing. We turned in for the night hoping for better luck.
