Trains come and go at Grenoble as I hide from intense rain under an overpass.

Grenoble, France

Grenoble is a university town southeast of Lyon and southwest of Geneva.

January 5th, 2012

I took the train from Geneva to Lyon, France, where the rain was too intense to leave the station. Half an hour and a sandwich later, I took the train on to Grenoble where the rain was not any better. After running protectively through the streets of the city, briefly admiring the intense clouds making ominous hazes of the surrounding mountains behind the cityscape, I took shelter under an underpass and watched the passing trains. As noted in my notes from January 4th, the photos my camera took were lost however I did take some video in Grenoble which is available.
