The varied roofs of Warsaw

They come in all shapes and sizes, including the stadium. I was standing at the top of Stalin’s Gift, the Palace of culture, which like the stadium, pops up as a landmark to help you get your bearings.

Or not as the case may be. I must say that Warsaw challenged my pretty good sense of direction, but it was a short visit.

Today is the penultimate day of Becky’s June Square Challenge and it’s been a fascinating one. Today she has a very pointed roof with an odd story.

An Etna roof

Becky’s June square challenge continues, in Lisbon.I had a bit of a dilemma with my photo because it fits Paula’s challenge too. You’ll see what I decided to do tomorrow.

I took the photo somewhere in the region of Monti Sartorius, Sant’Alfio in the Mount Etna National Park. Etna erupted several times between 2011-2012, this was June 2013 and there was plenty of evidence of damage. No one has ever died as a result of an eruption.

Square Roofs

Becky’s created a square challenge again for June, this time it’s square roofs or rooves as some say. A few years ago a very clever friend proof read something for me. She said I should change my roofs to rooves and then I was corrected by my writing tutor who said it should be roofs!

My roofs today, complete with funicular, are in Bergamot northern Italy.

Looking down from the Citta Alta towards the new town.

Becky’s choice today is very clever!

 

Could this be the poshest square?

Flying into Heathrow on Tuesday, I asked the pilot if he could oblige by popping down via a certain little home.  Anyone recognise it? 🙂

Becky’s having another square month, with the

theme of roofs or rooves this time, perhaps you’re joining in?

Yet again, I’m all behind, hopefully I’ll catch up a bit at the weekend.
