So why was the man in the square wearing a crown of laurel leaves?

Now I have no idea why the man was wearing a crown of laurel leaves but we were in Italy where victorious chariot drivers were awarded with laurel leaves.

Of course I never went over to ask and I wish I had.

We were in one of squares in Varese last Wednesday and after some indifferent weather and heavy snow the sun was out and it was warm enough to sit outside.

And plenty of people were doing just that.  Some had chosen to use the public seating while a similar number had ordered up a drink and in the process attracted friends along with at least two photographers of which I was one.

Which is all I am going to say.

Location; Varese; Italy
