Just like everyone else on the Rialto Bridge, our Selfie!
Begging on the train (which I’m sure is illegal), some guy passed these out in the train car, then came back around asking for $. I gave him his slip of paper back.
Johns first Slavonic beer at lunch in Trieste
My Cous Cous–delicious-also from Slovania chef

Our room in Trieste
Giant bathroom with 2 sinks
balcony facing the Adriatic – we have 180 view
View from our room–greatly zoomed.
Nut job swimming in front of hotel
When I applauded said nut job, his wife did, too. Good thing I didn’t know what he was saying.
Near our hotel is Miramare Castle, built in mid 1800’s for Austrian Archduke Ferdinand Maximillian and his wife, Charlotte of Belgium, later Emperor Maximillian I and Empress Carlotta of Mexico. We walked ther by the shore.
Don’t know what this is, he was hanging out by the seagulls.
The tiny bit of sun and sunset we saw
View to our hotel (in the middle) from the castle
Trieste from the castle
I don’t know what was going on, but we missed it.
Dinner at our hotel (reservations required-although we were the only ones there at 7:00 PM-the early bird version of European dinners) My delicious ravioli with things and bacon. It was great. I think that thing is fried cheese.
Johns desert-ice cream with fruit
My creme brûlée
