Florence was great, but crowded in more ways than one. The great press of tourists everywhere made it difficult to enjoy the city at times. And there was the huge crowd of churches, paintings and statues, all vying for our attention. Almost too much to take in, unless you’re prepared to be selective.
We’re in Bologna now, and it’s a very different proposition: less crowded and more relaxed. Whereas in Florence we were always going sonewhere to see something, in Bologna we’re just here, soaking up the atmosphere.
Today’s picture is of a street in the old quarter of Bolgna. It’s full of interesting corners and angles, bars and cafe’s. People come here to eat and drink, and we joined in, with some fantastic tortelloni and Sangiovese wine.
