    Sometimes lunch is not the answer; getting up late, you look west and think it's about time. Maybe it's not going to rain.

    So there we are, looking at the most envied balcony.

    A look at the market, and a beautiful nikon F with 105/2,5 - very expensive,I'll skip it.

    The square is full, almost.

    So we just step into the flow of people towards the Anphiteatre square (it's not square, you know)

    And then, some steps more and we reach the square. A good use of space, no lions left, and light.

    Then, while she jumps in and out of shops, back towards home.

    Alf, your Tuscany pics always remember onde of my best vacation ever, last year. Made a nice visit to Lucca in a really calm Sunday:

    4761356402_b52a4e5eaf_b.
    The gardens atop of the city walls are a great place to relax, riding a bicycle or just sitting on a bench having a gelato.

    The lovely Piazza del Anfiteatro Romano, beautiful Lucchesi landmark.

    Told you once, and I repeat: I envy you, Alf...

    Thanks for the great pictures. Your sets always remind me of my wonderful vacation to Italy 6 years ago, and how much I want to go back again. I look forward to more pics from around your country.
