Lucca Ambulation




The Tuscan medieval city of Lucca is one of few with its wall intact, making it possible to walk a complete circuit around the city on it. Much of daily life takes place on the wall, one might say that the wall is the peripheral centre of Lucca. On a Sunday morning Martin Blažíček and I take a walk on the wall: I walk clockwise, he walks anti-clockwise, we meet back where we started. The walk takes 49 minutes, compressed here into two and a half.

A roundabout technique no less!

indeed, an enormous roundabout at that!

And I was about to suggest you were at a crossroads with your work!

the circle line, repositioned.
very nice piece, and the full circuit apparently takes the exact same time as in london: 49 minutes, as the sheduled two-minute stop at hight street kensignton and algate extends the journey from the usual 45 minutes.

Interesting that the duration is the same - although this sounds like an average or ideal to me, the tube is surely never that efficient or reliable!

Following some signal problems earlier we can now report no delays to this mornings circle service.
