I have been living in Desio for 19 days now, and today is the first time that I took a stroll around the town. Every day I make a brisk walk between the house and the train station (and from the train station to the house), but the route isn’t too scenic. Desio is a small town; one main street and a couple of side roads. Today’s To Do list included checking out the sights.
Which there aren’t many of, I learned. Although I was surprised by the couple of reasonably decent cafe’s and several fresh fruit stores.
Other than that… the town seems a combination of locked gates, vines, and autumn-y colors.
For example, this is Gate #1:
And this is Gate #2:
Part of #4:
And a close-up of #5:
There’s about 183,482 other gates in this city (rough estimate), but I’ll spare you the rest. Instead, let me show you an example of the vines we have around here:
Here’s another example:
And another one:
And this photo combines both of Desio’s favorite things:
(and, just to make this seem slightly more like a civilized town, here’s a picture of the duomo. very out-of-place with the vines and locked rust gates:)
It wasn’t a very long walk. So, afterwards, I compiled a photography album of my photos on Elefantini, for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy and spread the beauty that is Italy/Europe/life!
