Based on the ‘not straight‘ definition
I think this the most famous building
skewed off-centre in the world.
Never once had I thought of it surround
by walls of other buildings…
clustered in a relatively small area.
However, all my memories were incorrect.
I’m just not certain where a photo
could be taken and leave the viewer
with the illusion of a Tower leaning
and not surrounded by other buildings.
Jo’s Monday Walk
Leaning Tower of Pisa
Before we arrived for this short walk we were advised
that there would be some ‘public transport’ to assist
our journey from bus stop to town…about 300-400 metres.
Not far but by this stage I feet were glad of any respite.
Off the bus/coach and onto McDonald’s Express.
This was my first surprise.
A hidden Tower?
Even this morning many of Google’s photos
depict the Tower in what appears to be
an uncluttered field.
And walls like this to further add some mystery to the area.
And the Leaning Tower is actually
the Cathedral’s, Bell Tower.
WE had neither time or energy to climb to the top
and decided this was close enough.
After a few obligatory photos…
we began our walk back to our coach via the market stalls…
stopping only occasionally to view the wares on display.
My contribution for this week’s challenge…
This week I decided to post
some images of landmarks which…
were talked about when I was at school…
have been through two World Wars…
and which we were fortunate enough
Although we only made it to the second level
of the Eiffel Tower it was an experience
not to be forgotten.
We were told that we could climb up, inside,
the Arc De Triomphe,
however, my knees, ankles and feet
as it was our last night of the tour…
It was wonderful to get back on British soil again.
I don’t know how many times I said ‘grazie‘
only to realise that we had crossed a border
and now should have said ‘merci‘, or ‘danke‘.
