Keeping watch over the piazza.
I feel like I'm being watched...
It's starting to look a lot like Christmas around Rome – tomorrow, December 8th, is the official beginning of the holidays here, but decorations have been showing up around the city steadily for a couple of weeks now. I love how a city as un-wintery as Rome still manages to look so festive!
It may be December, but when it's sunny and unseasonably warm you go ahead and hang your laundry outside to dry.
Flourescent-lit grocery store aisles with everything in plastic and boxes, or colourful outdoor markets where vegetables spill cheerfully out of haphazardly-stacked crates? I know which one I'll always choose...
Warm colours, worn textures, uneven rooflines, crooked antennas and rogue vines – quintessential Rome.
