For the past three weeks (maybe longer) I have been extremely out of touch with the world. I first took a two week jaunt with some family across western Europe from Paris to Brussels to Amsterdam (and a few places in between). That was very fun and very exhausting! When I returned home to Nijmegen, I had exactly 48 hours to pack up all our belongings once again to prepare for our move to Italy.
A 16 hour van ride later....we arrived at our new home in Padova, Italy. For the past week we have been running around like crazy to get settled in. We bought some used bikes, procured cell phones, paid our rent, and are now ready to enjoy the sun! Yesterday it was 82 degrees.
I cannot wait to show you more of this beautiful city, but here are a few shots to tide you over :)
|Beautiful cemetery sculpture across the street from our flat|
|Chapel at the cemetery, so vivid|
|The largest square in Europe, and Sant Guistina cathedral in the background|
|Galileo himself lived in Padova - this is an old astronomical observatory tower for him|
