Hello my Internet Friends,
This is mostly about friendly stairs.
"34andahalf!" Big Gunnar announced.
Big Gunnar announcing 34 and a half.
Big Gunnar: 35 and a half.
"You know" Big Gunnar said to me. "These steps were to honor the peace treaty between France and Spain. They made 138 steps between the church Trinità dei Monti, under french influence by the Bourbons on the top, and down to the Spanish embassy, or rather to the Holy See by the Palazzo Monaldeschi below."
"I race you to the top old man!" and " I am at least half way there!" He said to me.
Big Gunnar being at least half way to the top.

We decided after having looked both high and low for a while to go down again, and see the Steps from below, before we went back to the veranda at the apartment to rest our feet a while.
The look from below.
Walk the steps wherever you find them, and for as long as you have the possibility, they do not need to be a gift from Spain to France or vice versa in Italy to have a meaning. They can just be good exercise.
Best of today to you all, and have a really nice weekend wherever you are!
