Genova impressions-2

No two apartments in Genova have the same floor plan. The northern wind (tramontana) can be quite chilly even on a balmy February day. When it blows, the narrow alleys (carrugi) are strewn with single socks, swept from the clothlines above. Around sunset, the tops of the buildings are still enjoying the daylight, while the bottoms are steeped in darkness and the lights have gone up. It is completely acceptable to throw paper confetti anywhere in the street.
