Thursday not really Doors 16/3/23: Capalbio Scalo

Previous week I showed you our train station and once I was there, I took the long way home. It lasted an hour to reach it. I wish to show you my walk, no matter that there were not many doors to speak of.

But first: Take the fibre, they said. It will be fast, they said. And lo, for real. Look at this improvement! The first photo shows our old internet speed, the second photo new.

Downloads will now be 700 times faster! 😮 And uploads almost 300 times. I already noticed it when I uploaded my photos. It was done in the blink of an eye.

Do you know how fast your internet connection is? Take a test at I just took it again and download is even faster, Mbps 895.79!

Let’s return now to the previous Sunday when I put amore on the train and then walked with bestia out the train station’s back exit through our beautiful green countryside. Doors are where you see them. And look, there are daffodils! And even a lizard.

The panda symbol on the World Wide Fund sign caused a hilarious conversation when I first arrived here and was walking bestia behind the station. A man of unclear origin and language with a map folded out approached me and told me he had just gotten off the train and had no idea where he was. I showed him Capalbio on the map. Then he noticed the WWF panda sign and asked in all seriousness: “Are there bears here?”

  1. I enjoyed walking home with you. That was very pleasant, and there are more than enough doors. I am glad there were no bears, and that there wasn’t much water 😉
