Strada Nuova, Pavia
Took a thirty-minute train ride to Pavia this afternoon. It was marvelous. A bustling, walkable, compact little city, a university town (the University of Pavia being one of the oldest in Europe – currently celebrating its 650th anniversary). A market featuring chocolates, other candies and baked goods. St. Augustine and Boethius. Quite something.
Chocolate Sicily (the rest of Italy above. I wasn’t tall enough to get a good panoramic shot, even holding the camera above my head)
