View from Le Giostre on Riva dei Sette Martiri


  1. Did you take your son there?

    I love your screen name, by the way.

  2. He went many times, often with my wife--though not so many as I would have feared. I almost expected he'd want to go every day, but he didn't But he loved it, and would sometimes go with his friends: watching a 3 year-old and 2 3/4 old trying together to co-drive one bumper car was entertaining. Usually they only managed to turn almost in place in a tight circle, and always responded to older kids who bumped them by sticking out their tongues and blowing "raspberries."

    Alas, last Monday le giostre were loaded back onto their trucks, the trucks driven onto barges, and the Riva is clear once more.

    My screen name is just bare literal truth: I had no idea what to use as a screen name--but everything, even confusion, sounds better in Italian.
