I AM IN ITALY

... so ... I am back to ITALY ... more precisely in BERGAMO ... my home town ... 25miles from MILANO ... BERAGAMO is really a beatiful place ... especially the old part of the town ... all surrrounded by 4km long 1400 Venician walls ... simply gorgeous ... this is a section of the wall ...... and this is the simbol of the VENICIAN REPUBLIC ... a winged lion holding a book ...... here myself going around with an old bicycle ... it is an old BIANCHI from 1930 ... still perfect to ride ...... here l am in front of the city art museum ...... and here other pics ... of some of the buildings in the old city ... this is an old church converted in a section of the city university ... really pretty ...
... this is the public library ... one of the nicest building in town ... really really nice ... you should see it inside ... marvelous ...
... this is ... PORTA SAN GIACOMO ... in english is ... St. James door ... one of the 4 gates to enter the old town ... all white marble ... and here as well ... you can see also the Venice symbol ... the lion with the wings holding the book ...
... this is one street in the old town ... I like this picture ... with the sunset ... lighting one of the city towers ...... I will stay here for 2 weeks ... until September 23rd ... enjoying my family ... friends ... food ... wine ... and the weather ... really a mild fall so far ... I will update you soon ... had to go to the bank now ... it is closing in 1 hour ...
