In Italy it seems like there is always a swap meet somewhere. They pop up in town squares and out in fields like the sunflowers that seem to grow everywhere. But the really big ones are something to see, acres and acres of moto "stuff" some so rare you never thought it would be possible, all bracketed by piles of things not worth the benzina to haul them. I love the atmosphere of the dealings, the chatter in Italian, the smell of two stroke oil and sounds of motors being fired up for potential buyers. It's a photo safari as well, everywhere you look there's something to share. Oh, and the food! Best porchetta sandwiches and french fries you can imagine, sugar dipped fried dough and crepes with nutella, it's all integral to the experience. Join me for a walk around Novegro....
