Haiku # 133

early morning walk

wind ruffling wild raspberries:

three black fingertips

View of the Apennine and a solitary trekker – Italy

        Yes – perfect idea! I’ve only briefly hiked by Mennagio once – but would love to do it lots more. 🙂

          This photo was taken in the Appenine area between Bologna and Modena.
          Just don’t forget your trekking shoes!! 🙂

            Ah, that’s convenient! It could be combined w some days in Bologna then.. I was there a brief few hrs some yrs ago – in 40 degrees… and a local said “vai vai” and “come back later”. But I think I loved it – the feel and the architecture.

            Sidepoint;
            I might’ve seen those mountains from the other side too perhaps.. from Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi…

              The “Libro Aperto” mountain signs the border between the regions of Tuscany and Emilia Romagna. There’s not much about it in English, but take a look here, if you like:

              Bologna is a marvelous town, you should come again in a more convenient climate 🙂

    Thank you grazie! Great tip. Libro Aperto – che bel nome! E parlo in fatto un po’ italiano – e leggo cosí cosí anche.. ma…
    ..it’s been some years – since the courses 🙂

    Anyways – a new trip is slowly taking shape I think!
