Ponte Nossa Travel Blog› entry 30 of 92 › view all entries
In Ponte Nossa, I finally have an audience. A frail old fellow, maybe in his eighties, sees me playing and comes to listen-- and then sing a couple oldies songs from the sixties as I play along. It’s a pleasant little encounter-- a nice way to end a beautiful day parkbenching the Alps.
Other than that, there’s an old waterwheel, a ancient medieval church, and great views of mountains all around here in Ponte Nossa. It’s been a great day-- seeing how humans and nature are able to coexist peacefully in one of the most beautiful regions in the world.
I head on back to Gazzanega and on towards Bergamo. But before I call it a day, I’ve got a couple of revisits to do. Remember back in October when I got rid of my guitar and took video clips in my last 3 towns scraping my water bottle as an instrument? Well, that’s never set quite right-- I’ve always felt that I need to get back a do those towns again… and today is my chance.
So I hop on a bus down to Albino, and then catch the train from there to Nembro and then on to Alsano Lombardo, playing a quick session and taking a video clip in each town. Feels much better now… no more “half done” towns…
Then from there I take the train on down to Bergamo, find a hostel room, and decide to call it a night.
