More Italy photos for you

I’m back, supremely jetlagged, and have managed to stagger out to the Rancho.  Bella, because I know you want to know, had a marvelous time with her cat sitter while I was gone. He was doing research much of the time he was at the apartment and therefore was sitting still.  This created a number of perfect opportunities to pet the cat, of which he apparently took advantage.  Bella says he can come back anytime.

I have about ten thousand photos from Assisi and environs, which I’ll be posting over the next week.  To start, here are a bunch of them.

Sculpture, tiles, and frescoes

Assisi is full of frescoes, mostly old, and tiles and sculptures, many newer (but most by no means new) mounted outdoors on the stone buildings.  Some, especially the frescoes, were damaged in the 1997 earthquake or over the past, you know, eight centuries.  I’ve been photographing them as I walk around town.  Thought you might like to see a few.  (I have photos from some interiors, too; will post them later.)
