Le Mura Villa In The Mist


When our guests have left Le Mura Villa it becomes our home again. At this time of the year and even when the sun isn’t shining my affection for Le Mura doesn't diminish. We love to light the fire in the kitchen and cook. Last weekend on a misty November Sunday my daughter Isabella took some pictures that capture why Le Mura is as beautiful on wet day as on a sunny one.

Lucca Comics 2013


The last three days Lucca has been invaded by more than 200,000 visitors dressed in strange, wonderful and sometimes scary costumes. Yes it was comics again. Here is a selection of characters; the protagonists love to pose but I prefer to catch them off guard, so here is  a medley of pics that I took as I was wandering through the throng.















 




Now the festival of comics is over Lucca's gets ready for winter and the city is returned to its residents.
