There is much old scaffolding (rusty looking) on the buildings which reminded me of New York in the 1990's. In NY the property owners put up scaffolding but did not do any work. Why? The scaffolding protected those walking below but more importantly it helped in preventing being sued. New Mayor, new times, and the scaffolding had to come down if renovations were not being done. When walking around NY in the 1990's it was a nusiance dodging scaffolding, it was horrible.
My journey with Andrée through Italy was like being on the camino. We moved on regularly, we carried our luggage ourselves, we walked as often as we could around towns, we experienced new foods and we saw new places and people every day. There is so much to digest of what we saw and learned along the way.
Home again ....
I am tired after over twenty-four hours traveling home. There was a major storm in New York and the East Coast area, my flight was delayed for over two hours. I had a long connection time as it was.
On our return from out west we will be visiting Louisiana to attend a Southern wedding on May 14. I did not think of the wedding as a Southern Wedding until Bev mentioned it, then I thought of the movie Steel Magnolias. Steel Magnolias are Louisiana women who have the beauty of the magnolia but are made of steel inside. Did I get it correct Dawn? Dawn is my long time Steel Magnolia friend. Will Bev, Lisa, and I create the fun for Dawn that she will need for the wedding as those ladies did for the bride in the movie.
