Silver Spirit Cruise Photos
It was a sunny day, so we took our traditional shadow self-portrait on a sidewalk in Ajaccio.
We then went exploring outside of downtown, following a route on our map that led us along a street that had four different names over its short distance: Avenue du 1er Conseil, Avenue de Paris, Cours Grandval, and Cours General Leclerc. (Most cities name streets after famous events, places, or people; in Ajaccio, they name blocks.)
We still haven't learned the name of this building along the
avenue(s), but we won't forget its imposing façade and impressive gardens.
In due course, we reached yet another Bonapartean monument: at the Place d'Austerlitz, where a family of tourists were posing at the top of the steps.
Saying good-bye to the emperor's statue, we walked down a
steep hill to a boulevard that led along the water toward the Citadelle and
port. We found another statue--this time, of a naked lady--on the seaside
