Phew, I made it back home before the hail started. The weather has been pazzo (crazy). The sun came out for a few hours yesterday morning. I ran out and snapped the following.
December 1st kicked off the Christmas market in Piazza Navona.
This carousel was built in Germany in 1896.
Christmas trees are growing in popularity but aren’t really an Italian tradition. Here it’s all about the presepi (Nativity scenes). There were some mangers with running water, moving/bowing Wise Men and bakers holding loaves of bread.
Check out the tiny fruit, buckets, etc. in this photo.
I love ciambelle (donuts) but these are huge. I don’t think I could eat without passing out from a sugar rush.
