Pastry progress

Can a town really be considered rebuilt until the pastry shop is open?

A friend brought over my first torta monterossina of the season last night.  It's a special treat from here that consists a soft pie shell filled with a thin layer of apricot jam, cream, and chocolate chips.  It goes without saying that it is delicious, addictive, and all things wonderful about Italian breakfast-tea time-dessert foods.  The pastry shop, Laura's pasticceria, is rebuilt and back at the wonderful work of supplying Monterosso with it's sugar intake.  It was an important moment in town.

Via Roma, back in the swing of things

in front of the pastry shop - fango replaced by blooming flowers

flower pots stop cars at the foot of Via Roma, to the right of the Church
And the streets look pretty nice too :)
