Then we went to the train station to wait. And wait. We went out for a late supper, in shifts, leaving folks behind to guard the suitcases. As it turned out this would be Sophie's last real meal.
We spent 9 hours based in the train station. It was mostly empty and reasonably comfortable. The kids read, played cards, chatted, napped, used the laptop, listened to some of our current readaloud. And waited. Finally the train rolled in. We boarded, took up our sleeper berths and most of us were asleep within a few minutes of pulling out of the station.
