Turin, Italy

For reasons as to me unclear, many people I know here in Milan deride Turin.  This just makes me want to visit Fiat city even more.

Maybe Italians think Turin is the ‘Detroit of Italy’!  I don’t know.  Anyway, this week, I’m posting two Images of Italy, seeing as last week I was away in the mountains creating the odd image of Italy of my own.

Back to Turin.  This black and white image of a Turin backstreet by cbjphoto is charming, and makes me want to go to Turin more than ever!  One of these days…

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Sometimes, black and white works very well, even in a colour world!  Great job cbj!

If you would like to see more of cbjphoto’s work then go see cbjphoto on Flickr, where you will also find a few more images of Italy.

Oh, and if you have been to Turin, tell me what it’s like – but only if you are not an Italian from Milan😉
