Week 22

A few weeks ago I was in Verona for business. It was really nice weather and not too hot.

Here are a few impressions.

Beggars as well as lovers in Verona

In Verona there is the balcony of Juliet. You know, from Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. This balcony is not really interesting. What struck me were the walls close to the balcony. People stick papers with their name and the name of their lovers. They hope this will help and make their love stay.

  1. Dear Nathan:
    Ahhh Verona- there is this little cafe, with outdoor tables just opposite the “coliseum”. I often dream of being back there- I hope to do it soon. These pictures awaken old memories. Bests: Roger
