Our holiday started at this cafe, which was just opposite our apartment. It was so lucky, as we were early and the man with the keys was late. Where the buskers are standing is our front door! Delicious Margarita pizza! It is the perfect excuse to eat pizza, being in Rome!
I love this graffiti. Not very professionally executed, but the message is good.
Later this graffiti man caught my eye.
He was opposite another cafe.
We were lucky to be staying very centrally,
and so there were lots of little places to eat and drink.
Be very careful when crossing the roads.
To cross them at all, even when there are crossing signs,
You have to force your way out.
Force your way out.
Keep eye contact with the drivers at all times.
Good luck softy English tourist!'
The people we met were all so friendly. But not the ones behind the wheel of a car! In the few very thrilling taxi rides we had, I noticed a habit in the Roman driver of making their own lanes. Where there is no lane, there shall be one! Vrrrooommm!
I do love seeing different driving habits.
It is kind of a boring obsession of mine, along with police driving programmes.Our street, the Via del Boschetto, in the early morning, before setting off for the Colosseum.
I used a photo of the beautiful ochre painted and weathered wall opposite, as the texture.
This is our view from the cafe where we had breakfast. It had a great view of the Colosseum and the start of the Palatine Hill. We visited the Colosseum, but not the Palatine Hill or the Forum, so I definitely need to go back!
This building was what inspired our trip-Antony was up one weekend and we watched a great programme on the discovery channel all about it.
