Having a great time, just need to adjust to the quaint customs and local environment. Beautiful out on the piazza – noonday shadows dance so elegantly. No problem as long as you don’t step between movements. The colourful cracks in the pavement create fascinating patterns, and are incorporated into the street art. It is not difficult avoiding stepping on them when they are in motion, even at night; they’re very luminescent. The odd little birds that everyone warns you about only sing in the early hours before dawn, so tightly sealed windows and closed blinds are necessary. Very peaceful here, really.
