I missed my train from Basel to Florence as I was confused with the timing. It cost a bomb to get new tickets to reach Florence the same night. And guess what ? The train connecting Florence from Zurich was delayed. In the end we were put in a taxi upon arriving in Bologna as there are no more connections due to the holidays. I was very lucky to meet this Italian pianist who was in the same plight. She managed to get me on the right train and even got her boyfriend to drop me off at the apartment in Florence. Thank you Irene !
Venue for the festival was nice but it seems there were not enough numbers to fill up the big hall
