Silver Spirit Cruise Photos
Ajaccio's business district had souvenir and food shops with Napoleonic themes...
...and another souvenir store for fans of Corsican blood feuds.
It also had shops of a less dictatorial or incisive nature,
such as ice-cream shops, clothing boutiques, and department stores.
As proprietors of the Venice for Visitors travel site, we were intrigued by a shop named "Venice."
Peering down a narrow and steep side street, we caught a glimpse of Silver Spirit in the Port de Commerce.
A fleet of vintage Citroën 2CVs drove through downtown Ajaccio. (We learned later that they were in Corsica on a club outing.)
A dog crossed the busy street without incident, and two other dogs socialized on a streetcorner with their human pets.
A building with wrought-iron balconies reminded us of the French Quarter in New Orleans.
A café-bar offered tropical fruit drinks, which appeared to the the Corsican version of American-style slushies or Italian granita.
We even caught the tail end of a wedding at the Mairie.
