Just A Bit Of Snow

It started to snow at about 0900 hours, fine, tiny snow which immediately melted once it touched the ground, and by evening, the snow had already turned into rain....

Rat On The Wall

La Pantegana (The Rat) on the wall of a building along Lungo Dora Savona, not sure why it is painted there, but it does leave a 'huge'  impression......

Perhaps to symbolize the problem of rat invasion in that area ?

Ridiculous Protest

The Lega Nord was protesting last evening, parading along via Pietro Micca at some point.
The reason was "in defense of democracy," to protest against the decision of the TAR that annulled by the presence of an irregular list, the regional elections of 2010, won by the coalition supporting the Piedmont secretary of the Lega Nord, Roberto Cota.

So, he was nominated under a list of fake signatures, and the responsibles (!) were condemned and yet on what ground he should still stay in position, as if nothing had happened?
He being elected is the resulted of an invalid nomination, thus he being elected is also invalid!

He and his party, instead of apologizing for cheating the whole region, they went onto the street and protest against the decision of the TAR. Perhaps he should just go away and save himself some dignity.

Love Lock

A love lock or love padlock is a padlock which sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically the sweethearts' names or initials are inscribed on the padlock, and its key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love.


These are two of the many 'locked' on the bridge across the river Po along Lungo Po Antonelli....
