Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign
I’m sure that I’m biased by our recent trip but one thing that is very prevalent along foreign coasts are beautiful little towns, centered around their local harbor, and made up of very picturesque pastel colored dwellings and other buildings. The photo below is of one of the small towns that make up the Cinque Terre area of the Italian Coast. Unfortunately for this area, they are suffering from many collapsing hillsides due to recent floods. While you can normally hike between the 5 towns that make up this area, all those trails were closed due to the instability of the hillsides. Despite that, the area is incredibly beautiful and provides a definitive example for these “foreign” (at least to us American tourists) style coastal villages.
