Our thoughts are with the people of Paris.
I kind of like this Italy place. I may have to look around to see if there are any homes I can either rent or buy. This house looks okay from the outside.
It may be a fixer upper and looks like it was built a few years ago. Kind of a mid century modern thing. Mid second century that is. I’ll have a look inside.
Quite roomy, with space to entertain my friends. Oh, Oh, I see a problem. It needs a new roof. There is a big hole in it that lets in too much light.
I’ll keep looking. It looks like they are building some new homes in this neighborhood. They have just started construction on the columns of the clubhouse.
This looks like an up and coming neighborhood.
This might just be an apartment house under construction. You can see they haven’t finished the top. I think I could fit in here.
I’ll take a look inside. This might work out. Plenty of space for some nice digs.
I’ve heard if you are interested in a new home, you should visit the area at night to see if there are any problems. So I snuck into the construction site at midnight. If there are ghosts, they live here. It is pretty spooky and I could swear I heard a lion roar.
Maybe this isn’t the place for me. Time to run, there is a shadow on the wall but I can’t see anyone casting it. I hope it is the neighborhood watch. I think I may have to leave town.
Before I leave Rome, there is one more ritual I must attend to. Not the Gelato thing, I already did that to excess. This tradition says if you throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain, you will return. I shall return to Rome. It is a city that holds centuries of sights and would take a lifetime to fully explore. I’m chuckin’ my money into the fountain.
Heading south, I came across a big mountain with smoke coming from the top. A barbeque! I haven’t had pork ribs in a long time. I found a sign, pointing the way.
I think it belongs to a guy named Vesuvius. There is a road that goes up pretty far. The problem is that it narrows as you go up and there really isn’t a good turn around. It can get a little crowded at the end of the road.
I can fix this. I’ll do a little traffic direction and straighten it all out.
Maybe it is time to climb the mountain and look for the Weber Grill at the top.
The view from up here is great but the smoke had died down and I can’t smell any BBQ masterpieces.
All I could find was this hole in the ground with steam at the edges.
I’m not too sure about this, that smoke coming from the side of the crater is making me nervous. Maybe it is time to just back out and go to a safer place.
I found this nice place down the road. You can still see the mountain but it seems plenty far away. What could happen here? The name of the town is Pompeii.
This nice man is a tour guide and said he would show me around. He even gave me a radio and a headset to use.
I kind of like this place. I might just settle down here. It seems to have wide streets and sturdy buildings.
A gated community. Looks good.
A nice theater.
Maybe the park needs a little restoration.
I’m not sure what goes on in this store and maybe I’m too young to find out.
Some of the other residents don’t seem to be in great shape so I guess I’ll skip this place as a vacation home.
I’m not ready for this kind of retirement community yet. I’ll head north again.
