My obsessions-Italy and Cooking

Good Morning Lucca!

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!
