assisi

March 8, 2010
venice/verona were wonderful!
except that i am now sick.

but i'm still behind in posting my assisi photos,
so here they are now,
and next will be venice (:

what used to be the roman amphitheater

many of the houses had these little plant holders
because in june, assisi holds a competition
for balconies with flowers!

probably like this?
adorable.

italians don't use dryers


san rufino
francis and clare were baptized here

need i say more?

basilica of santa chiara
and no, my photo is not lying
this church was PINK

pinkish limestone is a trademark of little assisi
and when you look at assisi from a distance,
you see a little white-ish, pinkish town

but i had no idea that anything would look this pink


umbrian views

the temple of minerva
but christian-ized

those are "stairs"


basilica of st. francis

a photo that i was not allowed to take

i got this audrey hepburn poster when we were in perugia
earlier that day, but i had to carry it around with me when
we went to assisi. i thought it would only be appropriate to
document audrey's company during our adventures

(ps.. sorry that my teeth are my only visible attribute...)

i wish that my photos conveyed how beautiful everything was
