Morning in a Small Town
View from the bedroom window. Why is the bus stopped there? Usually it labors up the hill, then on the flat road in front of the apartment, the driver guns it and if you are at the next bus stop, you have to start flagging down the driver, because since they have a full head of steam they want to use that running start up the next hill to the Grande Piazza.
"Can I get through these two cars?"
"Maybe I can get through. I'll keep backing up and moving forward. Maybe something will change". Driver was also being given advice by passer's by.
"I'm going to keep trying"
"I give up. I'll just backup, sit here and wait for the driver to come move the car."
Must be the car of an attendee at the wine show. A local would know not to park there.
Finally, the polizia arrive on the scene.
Polizia and neighborhood cat use this car as desk and couch. Calling tow truck?
After 2 1/2 hours the tow truck arrives.
More polizia arrive.
Illegally parked cars, clearly parked where NO PARKING signs are prominently displayed. Maybe parking signs don't apply to wine buyers and connoisseurs?
Oh no, I guess those NO PARKING signs apply to everyone. "While we are here, might as well write a few parking tickets".
