I was going through files of old photos and found these of Pisa, Italy. We had flown in from London and just made a quick stop in town for lunch.
~and, of course, pictures! Everyone knows about the leaning tower of Pisa . . . which really does lean! It is actually a bell tower, part of the beautiful Piazza Miracoli.
I guess the miracle is that after some 840 years, it is still standing.
The Bell Tower was begun in 1173, and started leaning soon after.
100 years later more layers were added. . . taller on one side than the other to compensate for the lean.
The most recent efforts have been to preserve the lean . . . and in fact tourism in Pisa. Every one who visits has to take the customary photo holding up the tower.
A Beautiful sight to see ~ once.
Now . . . let's see where everyone else is traveling this tuesday.
Y'all enjoy the ride~
