A corner in Assisi

Assisi is two towns - a well orchestrated tourist show by day, busload after busload of foreign tourists shuffling past tombs, through tacky souvenir shops and fast food pizza parlors, and a lively, warm pueblo by night, when locals gather in the Plaza de Comune for a glass of vino rosso and a long, animated chat they are happy to share with strangers.

Words tomorrow; a couple of photos today.



  • Love it ... beautiful beautiful image!

  • This is a wonderful photo. A little digital adjustment here and there could make it even more stunning. I would recommend darkening the edges a little but this is great anyway... -Yarbz

    Hey Sonja! I found Italy bella bella (ok, I visited one small town) and I found that italiañol will get you just about anywhere. You'll love it! What good travels you have coming up....

  • Funny you should mention "Italiañol" because I was just invited to a dinner where there were several Italians that spoke no English. I guess my "Italiañol" was actually Español with an Italian accent. ha ha. You should hear my French. It's just English with a Pepe LePew accent. (yeah looney tunes). No one else appreciates it but that the great thing about my sense of humor. It only has to be funny to me. A much simpler way to go. Do you agree? ha ha.
