Trieste Italy Architecture Part 1 of 3

Dear Art-loving friend,

I left Firenze for Trieste,Italy, on a night train recently.  It turned out that I had about a 6-hour layover before catching a bus into Croatia, my new home for the next couple of months.  Trieste is far more interesting than I had anticipated!   Check it out:

I had a few errands to run while I was still in Italy (and had some idea of what I was doing) and sadly, the cold that I caught before I left Firenze was starting to kick in.  I did not see as much of the city or especially even the port area as I wanted to.  Instead I returned to the station and sat in the warm café and worked on my laptop until the bus came.  I will say that I was delighted that the train station only charged three euro per bag per day for storage!  And the guy let me add my easel to my bags without an extra charge.  

Tomorrow I show you some SCULPTURE (I cannot WAIT to get back to carving stone on a daily basis), and the last post will be about the post office.  Sounds exciting, no?

In any event, I hope that you enjoy some of these architectural shots I took while walking around Trieste.  One can see that, like many northern Italian towns, the flavor starts to feel more Austrian than Italian, more Vienna than Roma.  Look at the WIKI link above to learn more about the ever-changing dynamics of the history of Trieste.
