Pietra Nera

2006-10-8 @ 2:48

Short (!) walk to the North, along the beginnings of the Cap Corse (Toga, Pietra Nera, etc.). Funny, as in Quebec, some people here cross out words in the other language on sign posts, in the case the name of the towns in French. The day didn’t start out too well: didn’t sleep too good (noise, late dinner with red wine, etc.), laryngitis, then allergies. And the first few kilometers north of Bastia are too urbanized.

Far more interesting is the Old Port neighbourhood
