Alpine Concerts

What a pleasure it is to be in a place such as Levico Terme. In my early days of Alpine trekking with Dave Scruby, he headed off to concerts whilst the rest of us flaked out after a hard day. But nowadays Sue and I have easier days and can afford to take a break during our trips, so from time to time we are able to attend these events.

Like many alpine towns during their short summer season, Levico hosts concerts on a small stage in the main square. Tonight it was the turn of 14 Trentino Young Musicians to perform a selection of Viennese waltzes for an audience of around 300. This sort of thing happens all over the Alps. It's great.

What a lovely way to conclude the first week of our holiday.

PS Thank you 'Anonymous' (aka 'truck geek'?!) for your ID (to be confirmed by Alan R! I didn't think Alfa Romeo made lorries). Coachwork by....?

Anonymous here (not a truck geek.) Found the site looking for boot reviews. I too didn't know that alfa romeo made trucks until i started to look at what that truck may have once been. It looks right hand drive so i looked at old british trucks but nothing looked similar. So i looked at italian trucks and both fiat and alfa made trucks during and after the war. Although i'm sure i've seen a similar truck kitted out as a fire engine in Austria this summer. They do like their fire engines in Austria. Very much enjoying your daily reports. Counting the days until my next trip to the Alps in August.
