The first stop on our journey was Padova, Italy (pronounced "padua") where Daniele and Enrico grew up. As I mentioned before in a previous blog, our borrowed little Peugeot, aka Kid Puggy, doesn't have a lot of power. A trip that took Daniele and Enrico under five hours in the previous month, took us eight. In those eight hours we passed four vehicles; a tractor, another Peugeot, and two bicycles. But we got there and also got a good summary of all the possible hand gestures pissed off Italians make on the road.
We loved Padova
It should be noted that history was never my best subject in school. So Daniele or Enrico please correct any facts that were conveniently modified.
Walking through the city was a great change of pace. It reminded us that man made objects can provide great beauty too. The warm weather got us excited about wearing shorts again. We also were in the midst of wonderful company.
