Pisa

Went to Pisa, like many a tourist, just to see the leaning tower. Nice combination of buildings, but didn’t find much more to recommend the town. Cathedral was free, tower was pricey, pizza was sketch. Best moments were quick chats with the Senegalese guy who was trying to make a Euro directing folks to empty parking spaces (there were many in the off-season, so not a good gig). Leaving and returning to our car, I got to practice my French enough to share our appreciation of Leopold Senghor, the first president of his country, and a wonderful poet. Our friend gave little bracelets to the kids, but unfortunately none of the following pix are of him…
