I had to go to Lucca today to do battle with the Questura over my Permesso di Soggiorno. It is not fierce battle, more wait in line for an hour or 2 and eventually discover what is the problem with the application I made in February this year. In this case it was simple, they wanted more money. I paid €80 and I get to wait for the next step, which hopefully will be waiting in line for an hour or 2 to collect my Permesso.
I took a walk through lovely Lucca afterwards and was drawn to the pretty windows. Here are a few.
Step back a bit to see where this window is.
This is one of the older entries into Lucca. The city expanded and the newer walls are further out. I think it would be great fun to live here.
I would love to see flowers tumbling from every window. If I was the mayor I would make it compulsory.
