Living with the Past: Cobblestone

True cobblestone.

And you don't have to worry about cars on the streets.

Lovely textures, everywhere.

It's an ancient little town in the mountains south of Rome.

It's more modern than it first appears. Besides the drains cut into the path, there is a cutout in the foreground that must be for a utility of some kind. Then there are the overhead wires and, not visible here, the TV antennas on the rooftops.

The narrow winding road leading to this tiny town reminded me of West Virginia (without the banjos). I'm told you could buy one of these houses for $20,000. Heck of a commute, though.
