Rags tied on one of the Due Torri
This is a Mona Lisa head, right? The head/body splice is throwing me off
Matt’s craft beer love continues
So casual about the old: beautiful painted ceilings in a bar
As an export from shaky NZ, this makes me very nervous
We went to a museum to check out old instruments and musical scores. This was above the stairway.
Photos of our trip to Bologna from a couple of weeks ago.. Our first proper trip there anyway, after passing through its train station on other journeys more than just a couple of times. We had been told we would like the city, and we did. So no hopes dashed there, phew. We were there specifically for two concerts; Nick Cave the first night and Gogol Bordello the second, but also got to take a look around. According to the internet, Bologna has the second largest historic centre in Europe. So we thought it was pretty. And delicious, as Bologna is also the home of ragu (more commonly known as spag bol).
Aaaand end. No wrap up/conclusion, sorry Amanda!
