I’ve been walking on the historic wall that surrounds Lucca’s centro at some point every day, usually in the late morning or in the afternoon. This morning, after getting a slow start every other day this week, I was up and out the door and headed for the wall at 7 am. The walkway and the view it affords is always something to behold, but the early morning views are something else. There are runners who will pass you by a few times as you walk around and maybe as many walkers, but no bikers yet and it so so very peaceful.
The morning light casts a gentle glow on the buildings.
I like to imagine who inhabited them in years gone by. What kind of lives did they lead?
And there it is-my breakfast of choice-a cappuccino and this delectable pastry filled with the creamiest of chocolate and topped with what else? A hazelnut!
