We had some lunch in the small coastal village of Acciaroli, Province of Salerno. Getting here was quite a driving thrill. Massachusetts drivers, despite our reputation, have nothing on Italians! Seated in the open air under a canopy, I saw a wall across the street that had been around certainly for centuries and had been repaired many times. But in Italy wherever we travel, we see that they repair what exists, rarely if ever replacing with new. It is one of the things that makes this country so appealing. These repairs become a part of the beauty and charisma of a structure. Layers of time you can see with your eyes and like a hug, it has a warmth and charm that is indescribable.
