Photographer's Note

In November 2004, my mother came to visit me in Europe and we rented a car and went to Genoa to see the town of our ancestors (Pieve Ligure 12KM East of Genoa)

In this particular day we took the bus into town which took forever but went through a winding road, and as we were approaching the train station I saw this view and I said: we are getting off. My mom was not very happy as it was lonely, cold, windy and a semi industrial wasteland going towards the station with rail tracks on the right. But I am really happy to have gone out as I really like this view of the city with the newer town in the foreground and the old town and snow cappped mountains in the background. I have posted as a ws a general view of the plae from where I took the picture.

I know its an Italian city that does not rank high in people's lists, but I think its untouristiness and old elegance, dynamism, port, old city make it an interesting place to spend a few days.
