Treviso city and suburbs

Here's where I'm living currently...6km north of Treviso..a 15 min commute by bike ..most of which time is spent navigating around the city itself in order to get to the language school.  Our apartment is on the ground floor, the family live on the first floor.  That's my set of wheels on the left.

And that's 2 weeks of morning language school  and  of training in the afternoon heatwave completed. Ooooff.....currently I'm just existing as the humidity is pretty high.   Starting next week I move to afternoon classes and morning training, which just has to be an improvement.  My sister leaves and Alex arrives on Wednesday.

Apparently there is some concern about water supplies as there has been little rain for the past 4 or 5 months and little snow up high  resulting in less new snow melt but more melting of the glaciers.

Pizzeria Treviso style
Bocce is clearly popular here!
There's an ippodromo, a boccidromo but sadly no velodromo

the ancient St Thomas gate I cycle through every day
and on the far side of the gate is the Pinarello shop, although I've not yet been to it.  The Basso shop just a few km away too....
