    Because of VT ...

    by craic Written Dec 2, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: ... some things aren't a surprise. I had seen a pic of these big cooking pans on Giampiero's page. So I even knew they are used for the festival each year when they cook huge amounts of fish.
    Or perhaps - were used - because they seem quite rusty and are a little eaten away around the rim.

    Great big frypans.

    The accordian player

    Favorite thing: This old guy does the rounds of the cafes and restaurants. One tune and then he comes to the tables with a small bowl for contributions. You can see it hurts his pride. He plays quite well. Someone has washed his old woollen suit and shrunk it a bit. Maybe he has 14 flats and a ferrari parked just around the corner - and the felted, old suit is his costume - but there was a look in his eyes that made me think he really needed the extra money.

    Someone's grandpa.

    And another gift from Camogli

    by craic Updated Nov 29, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Lying on the beach very close to the blue clothes peg - which is in perfect working order - was a cunning little work of art. The face of a wry and whimsical man etched by nature on a small pebble.
    Matthew is insisting I declare it when we return to Australia - because we are an island continent it is important to try it keep it as disease free as possible - any natural products have to be declared.
    So I shall line up at the quarantine line. They will say - "What have you got?"
    I will pull out the pebble.
    They will say - "What is it?"
    I will answer - "A gift from Camogli."

    I do hope they don't confiscate it.

    Objet trouve.

    The generosity of Camogli

    by craic Written Nov 29, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I was astounded to come upon a blue clothes peg while I was trying to paddle - ouch ouch - on the pebbly beach.
    (Pebble beaches are a bit of a shock to people who are used to sandy beaches. Matt said -"Europe doesn't do sandy beaches" - but maybe there are one or two.)
    Why such astonishment to find a blue clothes peg?
    Well, back in Australia I noticed my clothes pegs were going missing off the line. Then a neighbour found a satin bower bird's courtship arena. The males love blue - and filch drinking straws and bottle tops and clothes pegs .... when she took us through the bush to see the beautiful display area - there were all my blue pegs.
    Back in the old days, before brilliant blue plastic, the satin bower birds would have had to make do with blue berries and flowers - which faded. They must be desperately over dosed on blue these days.
    Anyway, I am taking this blue clothes peg back to Australia as a gift from Camogli to the satin bower birds of Australia.

    It had to be blue.

  • No balcony? Paint one!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The faces of the buildings have windows, balconies, even sleeping cats, painted on them. At first you may think it REALLY is a balcony. but then you realise that there is no window at all - its fake!

    Which is the fake one? :D
