Bill and I walk across Via della Coppelle almost every day.
The wall colour is typical of the historic centre.
Roman fountains date back to a time when free, fresh water was considered a human right. They still flow every day, all day.
Look up in Rome -- decorative elements, usually religious, abound.
Never pass a church without going in. This turned out to be the church of the Portuguese community -- with stunning marble walls within.
Buccone on the Via di Ripetta is a good place to buy excellent olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Businessman/politicians all wear perfectly-cut suits with their recently trimmed hair -- very slick.
We had circled "International Priest's Day" on our calendar.
It did not disappoint.
I had fun learning to use the camera in my phone -- especially for quick shots.
Walk this way.
Roman infrastructure -- feel free to drink.
Bill on our street in Rome: the Via dei Bergamaschi. Again the wall colour is typical
Romans handle graffiti by constantly painting over it. The lower paint is fresh.
Typical Roman with cellphone in one hand, cigarette in the other.
Typical tourist with map.
Old trees, old churches, old cultures.
Dusk in the Eternal City.
Always colourful by our favourite bar on the Via del Governo Vecchio.
Dining in the dusk.
The peckish can always grab a snack (forno = oven).
