    Tarry Easty

    June 26, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    Recognise the little leprechaun walking along a street in Tarry Easty? [Finnegans Wake?]
    After dropping Adam at the airport I motored down the coast road past Mad "Emperor of Mexico" Max's Castello Di Miramare, equipped if I remember correctly with a beautiful green marble bath and gold taps, towards Trieste and lunch with cousin Igea (& Vanessa & Alessandro.)

    Whether founded by Japhet son of Noah as some claim, or by the passing Argonaut Tergeste, (one of Jason's buddies,) which seems more likely given its Roman name, Tergeste, it was already a wealthy port in 178 BCE. Travel writers since then have been careful to describe the place as nondescript if they mention it all. Our Jamie, (my Joyce for leading into this,) although living in the place for several years at the conclusion of the Hapsburg dynasty's influence, never wrote about it directly for example. My feeling is that this was done specifically to Keep Tourist Away and Preserve The Purity of the town. Which it has done leaving the older Eastern part of town (near where Igea lives) pretty unscathed and the Western (North of Corso Italia,) redevelopment by order of the Empress Marie Therese is a classical 18th C suburb above the Canale Grande.

    A few tasters including the largest square in Europe facing the sea, Piazza del Unita d'Italia.

    Actually, from a geopolitical point of view, it should be in Slovenia but there you are.
