Arrived here Sunday afternoon and haven’t left the city center all week. Mostly I hang around town piazzas (plazas) or I haunt the Passeggiata Mura, the wonderful walkway along the fortification around the city. Right now, I’m sitting under a patisserie’s large square umbrellas around the Piazza San Michele.
It’s actually pretty quiet at this hour (10:40am) but then it hasn’t been very crowded the entire time I’m here. The temperature during my stay has been perfect… Feels like 70s and low 80s, often with a pleasant breeze though on top of the wall, the breeze can become a good wind! The color of the sky is nearly impossible to describe….pure beautiful blue.
My cappuccino decafinato just arrived so I’ll leave you for now with a few snaps of this wonderful town Lucca!
More on this tent in another post.
This next little surprise photo is a Hoopoe with a worm. We saw these birds flitting around our Cortona bnb. I have to use a Google image because they’re too shy and too quick for any of us to photograph them! They’re about the size of a robin, I think. Extraordinary plumage!
