APPARENTLY I DO LOVE A PARADE

In general, I’m not a big parade go-er.  I never really had the patience for standing there and watching floats and bands and such, dealing with the crowds and the noise and bother.  I guess I’ve always been a bit of a parade scrooge.

But this time it was different.  I spent Sunday wandering around Torino, trying to soak in as much fresh air and scenery as I possibly could on what was undoubtedly my last day to myself.  I went down to the River Po, wandered by the Mole Antonelliana, visited the Museum of Film, and sipped on a bicerin – all of the things that one might want to do while in Torino.  I even got a little shopping done.


As I made my way toward Piazza San Carlo with the full intention of visiting the Museo Egizio, I ran into a few men with instruments wearing matching blue and red costumes.  And then I met some costumed children who were throwing chocolate.  And then I heard the music.  Oh yes, it was a parade, one to celebrate the Carleve’ed Turin, which began on February 4 and goes until March 5.  So I walked down Via Roma, wandering amongst the various performers, and completely forgot about my plan to learn more about Egyptian culture and artifacts.  That’s what the Olympics are about, though:  having a large menu of amazing things to see and learn about, and choosing which ones you can fit into your life to enjoy.
