Outside a church in the old town. A little girl with her mother and an aunt stopped to have a look. “Rub it for good luck,” the mother said. The girl gave it a tentative pat, decided it was ok, then grabbed on with both hands. “Be careful, you’ll have too much good luck!” laughed the aunt.

Mosaic at the archeological museum. The craftsmanship on all these ancient mosaics was amazing (most of them were substantially less macabre).
