Fun, Exciting and Unusual Sights
There were so many fun, exciting and unusual sights, it is really hard to show them all. Plus can you believe it; I ran out of memory for my digital camera….never again! I am off to B&H to buy more!!!
This is the largest Mortadella that I have ever seen; just one slice would make 2 sandwiches.
This guy was so skilled with a knife, he sliced it so thin!
We thought that it would be so fun to have our picture taken in this curbside photo booth.
It looked so innocent from the outside…looks can be deceiving though, as our noses soon found out! You can only imagine how the picture turned out, we laughed so loud and hard, we turned many heads.
This was a great fountain with a great story. It is the fountain of the four turtles, and here is its story. Once upon a time, a beautiful woman lived across this square. On the other side of the square lived a young man who wanted to marry this young woman. The young woman’s mother did not like this young man for her daughter (he was a gambler!). To sway the young woman’s heart he had this fountain constructed overnight, so that when she awoke she would see it from her bedroom window. She did, it worked and she married him. Now here is the twist, later she realized her mother was right; he was not the right man for her. She divorced him, moved home & bricked up her windows so as to never look upon the fountain again! You can still see the bricked up windows!!
