Feast of Corpus Christi

Have just witnessed a procession from Basilica San Petronius, hundreds with candles and hymns blaring for the feast of Corpus Christi? The Basilica happens to be next to our hotel on Piazza Maggiore in Bologna. Home of the Bolognese themselves, ragu sauce & heaps of other food & wine which is at arms reach everywhere you go. Bologna is an old but worn out looking city which was very important in the Middle Ages being at the crossroads of several large towns such as Ravenna, Florence & Venice & being the home of the first university. Of the population of around 600,000 bods 100,000 are students. I did a walking tour this arvo then met up with Bloss for an outside antipasto board & drink. Currently 25deg at 11:00pm so a couple of hot days to end our trip with.
