Il Parco del Crostolo

I live near il Parco del Crostolo, or Crostolo Park, a great place to walk, run or ride a bike. I love this place and come here almost daily. Italians, who once laughed at Americans’ crazy exercise routines, take physical fitness more seriously now and also like to work out here.

The weather has been so nice lately, I’ve been walking around the park (listening to NPR podcasts) without a jacket. Today it’s raining, however, which is why I’m blogging.

Once in a blue moon I see a guy renovating this place, which is inside the park, but usually no one is here.

Under the bridge. I am usually anti-graffiti, but thought this was cool. And it’s just a bridge.
