Nov 2012: An old wall crumbling under earthquake stresses

I walk back from the Museum to the Hotel

Passing the usual traffic jams

And then I pass this strange little structure

Its fenced off

Looks like some kind of a church structure

But here was the sad bit, it was all worn away and then there was the crack

A bloody serious crack running down the side.

Stepping back

Walking around this structure

No plaques or anything which tells me what this is all about, from the rear you can see it has cracked down to the base and then it has been repaired..

Walking down some of the side streets

Construction going on

A pillar of light

The statue of Athena or was it Diana?
