The Heart of Rome

March 22, 2016  •  1 Comment

Cobblestones and thin-souled shoes are a match made in heaven, its time for another 10 mile plus day

So I invite you to enjoy this day with me visually as there was a lot for the seeing and less for the talking. If you have any questions, feel free to comment and I'll explain away.  Hopefully the visual tour will be less tiring but just as rewarding!

Hidden Steps

As for the city of Rome, it is loud but more so robust.  Full of people selling selfie sticks and pushing past you to stop three seconds later to take their picture.  There is trash on the streets, not many waste bins and sheer chaos. I'm 1000% convinced that the game Frogger was based solely on the street crossing, near death experiences of this city.  But the chaos has a beat, and once you learn when to jump in the street and how to say no to strangers, it really has a charm that grows on you. Honestly when I first arrived here, I was massively overwhelmed. A few pizzas later, Kit is a happy Roman.
