Umbrella in the alley
For the past six month I’ve been suffering from concussion so no travel for me at the moment.
I just found this picture I took in Naples, Italy some years back, and I immediately got a smile on my face … I know, it’s just an umbrella that’s left in an alley, for one reason or another, but for me it also brings hundreds of memories and my imagination will have free rein.

Funiculì Funiculà was also the tune of a song from a good friends birthday party, so naturally this photo brings my mind to Naples, to the people, to Mount Vesuvius, and back to Denmark.
