Living statue in Livorno
She definitely wasn't up to the standard of the living statues in Genoa. Some of them were works of art.
But she had made an effort. Borrowed her little sister's dolly to be the infant Jesus.
She was doing the sitting-very-still thing.
She was the only living statue I saw in Livorno.
So I dropped some money into her basket.
Suddenly her hand moved and she gave me a slip of paper.
She was wearing purple fluffy woollen gloves!
It gave me quite a turn.
It appeared the slip of paper blessed me in the name of the Virgin Mary and gave me my lucky number. I think it was 9.
The police arrived ...
... the old gent who had been riding the vespa in the first accident turned up, on his feet, looking sprightly.
Bit of a palaver. Everyone was quite cool.
The girls drove the car to the side of the road and the police made chalk marks around the body of the vespa.
I have no idea who was in the wrong.
One got the impresion though that it was the old gent on the vespa.
Maybe his reaction time had slowed down.
Speedy reactions are the trick to staying alive on Italian roads.
Mercato Centrale and the main canal
Behind Piazza della Repubblica, the main canal re-appears and turns a corner, where the buildings alongside it become much grander and more impressive as you near the sea. One of the grandest buildings is the large Mercato Centrale, a three story dark brownish pile in between lots of yellow buildings. The canal is one of the more active waterways in the city, with many small boats going back and forth. What I'd like to know is...do the boats carry on under the piazza-cum-bridge?
sonnino beach is another place where young people go to relax, party and enjoy life..
