    So we get up and jump into the shower, then leave the home near the woods and go for the big target over there - that is, Turin. First capital, a showpiece of planned architecture, a corner of central-eastern Europe inside Italy - home of culture, industries and, mostly, chocolate.

    We enter it just near the royal palace, and meet a nice huge nativity scene.

    We chat with friends, have lunch, and any moment is good for a coffee in one of the many historical venues for the tiny cup of black, and endless chocolate.

    After a long walk, I have a short time to play with all the cameras I didn't play yet - it seems I'm not going to leave the mu43 fold, as the GX1 is really nice and I Want One. Meanwhile, someone had other, different plans.

    I begin to see things. But it's real. Time for a long nice aperitivo.

    We are not alone, this gallery was full of heavy geared photographers with huge DSLRs training their skills on the sky above. Artificial.

    Time to slowly head back. Something to eat near the square (Ligurian, wow) and into the lights again.

    Behind the royal palace, again. I love the geometry of this corner of the square.

    Then you turn, and the ancient gate is there.
