Back to my eastshore hikeâ€¦
After Patrick and I finally exited
Bogliasco is a narrow town with the sea on one side and steep hills on the other. Itâ€™s got a very neighbourly feel with a crowded little park where kids come to play and young mothers gather to chat and gossip. Iâ€™ve explained the â€śparkbenchingâ€ť concept to Patrick, so he patiently waits as I go through my little routine in each town.
Here in Bogliasco I first notice the â€śfake baroqueâ€ť style that seems to be popular in this region.
My theory is that folks here felt a bit self conscious being so close to glorious Genova and felt that had to do something to spruce up their homes-- but just couldnâ€™t quite afford to do the â€śreal thingâ€ť!
Anyways, Bogliasco is a cool little discoveryâ€¦
