This first post will be pictures from my morning walk.
Every day when I've walked up from my hotel to the Corso Vanucci, I've seen this little tiny side street winding down to who knows where and yesterday, I decided I'd just go down it and see where it went. The only problem is, of course, that all of these little streets just go to another little street and that one goes to another, etc., etc. But it was a beautiful morning so I just wandered on and on. Took lots of pictures trying to get some that would give an idea of the maze-like aspect of this town, but that's probably impossible.
Anyway, I ended up realizing I had no idea how to go back the way I had come. But, I figured if I just kept on walking, I would finally come out somewhere that I could recognize and, eventually, that's what happened. I wish I could spout off all the street names like I enjoyed doing so much in Florence last year, but Perugia's signage isn't quite as good as Florence's and my map of Perugia only has the main streets named (another reason it was so easy to get lost).
So without further ado, here are the pictures from my walk.
The first thing I did was go back to the restaurant where I ate Wednesday night to get a picture of it and this is the upstairs dining area. Very cozy and nice.
This was a really big arch - big enough to be an apartment or two, I'd think. Lots of them are probably at most just a walkway or maybe a room for one of the buildings on either side.
And the trees were full of olives - I think they're on the small side probably - they seem smaller than the ones I remember seeing when I was taking my walk in Montefioralle last year but I imagine these may not be tended as carefully as an actual olive grove.
This is a part of the very high, long wall that curves around this open green space. I wish I could know what this place is ...
We will now take a break!
