Pisa – Italy

— Places —
The famous leaning tower of Pisa is conveniently located in the City of Pisa. 🙂 The tower is actually the bell tower to an adjacent church that serves as the duomo (seat of the Bishop) of Pisa. I always thought there was just a tower, nothing around it. But there is a massive cathedral next to it! Crazy!

Why does the tower lean? When the foundation was set, it was built on weak soil and sunk on one side. Due to financial constraints and battles going on, construction was halted for roughly 80 years. This allowed the foundation to settle in and become stable. At which point, it was decided they would finish construction and to compensate for the lean, they attempted to build one side taller than the other. A futile attempt, but you can see a slight curve in the building because of it. Since, they have reinforced the building and even reduced the lean to ensure it doesn’t topple over.

If ever you go to Pisa, just know that it is the only thing in town worth seeing. I took an afternoon and rode the train in from Florence and left.

My first time to DC was so much fun! There is so much history about our country that you could spend hours and days just reading all that has been put together to commemorate our beautiful red, white, and blue! The Pentagon Memorial…

Leaving It Behind

The photo composite (Titled: Leaving it Behind), took 15 hours to edit. While the story can be told however you want, the but the environment has rain, a back road, and the Golden Gate Bridge.
