We got up at 5am to go catch the vaporetto to head off to the train station to catch our train to Milan. We successfully transferred to a train for Ventimiglia but upon arriving there were told that there was a 24 hour French train strike and we might not make it to Nice. We still don't know if there was really a strike or if it was related to the current dispute between Italy & France about North African refugees. After several hours of hanging out on the platform about 3-4 trains worth of people crowded onto a Monaco train that came through (being from Monaco rather than French rail it was running). It was a crazy crush of people and we were very glad to get to Nice, but we had missed our connection for Les Arcs. Unless the Monaco train we were on was the connection and we got off when we should have stayed on but we're not sure about that either. Luckily there was one more train we could take so off we went arriving in Les Arcs about 9pm.

Michael and Richard came and picked us up at the Les Arcs train station and we are now ensconced in their lovely rustic farmhouse in Aups.
