Rome is such a beautiful city, so much history, the architecture its hard to put it into words. The Pantheon....its the structure, the feelings you experience when you are there, the thoughts of who may have walked on that marble floor before you....centuries ago. I am so fortunate most of the churches have been open and so have been able to walk around and experience the beauty, the fine art detail and a feeling of "at peace"....how wonderful is that! I went to an exhibition "once we were Romans" pieces of art from 130BC and they are still finding stuff from civilisations long gone........Rome the eternal city!
One of the things I enjoy in life is a good coffee and Iam now into espresso or in Aussie a short black, I often drink at the counter now....its what the locals do "its cool" and only 80c while at a table its $3.00 +, the pasta and pizza are good and thew wine is so smooth just slides down, the people are so friendly and one other thing on food tomatoes taste like real tomatoes - I was talking to one of the owners also cook in a cafe and she was saying this has been a really good year for tomatoes, they are awesome and she also made a tiramasu....it was to die for!
