Who knew streets could be so exciting?

Via 4 Novembre, in front of A Ca Du Gigante after the flood

This afternoon - cars parked on their own, not swept there in the flood

Via 4 Nov today, in front of Hotel Palme

After the flood...

The foot of Via Roma

Today - grand openings all around and new benches!

In front of Pizzeria Smorfia and the pastry shop and The Net internet cafe on Via V. Emanuele


Behind Fast Bar, just before the San Martino stairs

Open and ready for business.

How far we have come, Via Roma

I know it seems that all I write about these days are streets, but, in all honesty, it's almost all I'm thinking about as well.  Via 4 Novmebre has been paved, and I have to say - this was the first time in my life I inhaled the smell of fresh asphalt and grinned.  More grand opening parties today, and a booked bed and breakfast this weekend - fresh asphalt isn't the only thing to smile about.


  1. Wow - Everything looks great ! Congratulations to everybody on a lot of hard work to get everything ready for visitors. How's the weather ?

  2. Weather has been fantastic! 70F today and the beach was dotted with towels and happy sunbathers - and a few brave yet cold souls in the water :)

  3. Such grand news. I know everyone has worked so hard. Blessings to all of you there.
