My stay in Nervi, Genoa

I stayed in Hotel Savoia and Savoia in Nervi.  Just outside the gate of my hotel and some stairs down there was a railway track, further down there was sea.  In my hotel there was a swimming pool and a park.  I was four years old and I did not know swimming at that time, so I only kept my legs in the pool.

There were two buildings.  We stayed in the building that was at the back.  I used to play Uno with my papa, mummy, Anupama didi and Brijendra uncle.  There was a park near my hotel.  In that park there were slides, swings and there was a bridge to walk over because down there was a railway track.

I walked very much in that park. There was a big Rose garden in that park. Every day after papa went office, mummy and I went to sea for a long walk.  Sometime I saw people canoeing and sometime I saw sail boats in the sea.  There was a railway station. I used to stand there on a chair and see aeroplanes, ships and trains at the same time. After that we would go to the park. I would stand on the bridge and look trains changing tracks. I would stand for hours.

I used to take a bubble bath on weekends in my bathtub. In our room there was an open kitchen.

One day we took train and went to Genoa.  There was an aquarium.  I saw Shark, Whale, Sea horse, and many fishes. We took a bus to come back to the hotel.  I was in the bus. I saw three ships that took cars to one another country. My favorite place was Brignole. There was a fountain and I used to run round and round around it.

Nice place to run – Brignole

There was a car named Smart car. It was very small. There was a shop, the shops door open automatically. I used to go there with my mummy  to buy ice cream and chocolates. I like that shop. I would love to go to Nervi again.

I wish I could be among them
