It might sound funny to an English-speaking person when this city bus stop is announced: “Next stop, Drama.” But this is the name of Slovenian National Theatre which has occupied this lovely Art Nouveau building since 1919.
Drama is such a useful word. In our pack it can mean many things, including snow. For amore there are few dramas worse than snow. In the winter father often reports how many centimetres of drama has fallen overnight.
It was a rainy day so no wonder that these photos look as if having been taken in a leafy November, not this May. We rounded the corner and there it was. For a moment I wondered if it had always been as pretty. It’s good what a little distance can do. You start to appreciate more what you once took for granted.
The featured photo is the church next door though, Ursuline Church of the Holy Trinity. I prefer its doors to Drama’s. Serves it right for having nice but all same old white doors!
As for the current situation in the south of Tuscany: the car just showed 36 degrees C (96.8). Outside, not in. We will have to invent a season beyond summer.
