Saturday Photohunt: Oooooo

I say "Oooooo" when I stumble upon quirky corners of the this street in Citta' della Pieve, Umbria:

Vicolo Baciadonne, which is Italian for (I believe) Kiss the Woman Street. I have heard a couple explanations for this name:
  • It is so narrow a person can lean out a window on one side and kiss a woman in the window on the opposite side.
  • It is so narrow two people have to kiss in order to squeeze past each other.
Either way, it was fun wandering through, if a shade disconcerting because you cannot see the other end when you start, and the street is longer than you'd think! Plus when you turn the corner, it seems to get reaaaaaaally narrow and you wonder if you are going to fit! Sadly, I did not meet George Clooney coming through from the other side...
