Long, lazy, balmy summer weekend evenings ☀️
As the middle of August creeps closer and closer, Rome is getting progressively more empty, with closed shops and restaurants all over the place. It's not my favourite time to be in the city (hot, closed, full of tourists and devoid of Romans is not a great combination) but it does make the beginning of September – with its rientro as everyone heads back into the city – all the more appealing.
August in the city: Streets that start to empty out, shops that close until September... And laundry out drying in the searing hot sun for the people who chose not to escape far from Rome this month (me included!).
A classic moment in the eternal city.
Shady corners and cascading greenery in Modica. ⠀ ⠀ (Yep, still posting photos of Sicily while weathering the heat wave here in Rome and trying to move as little as possible – unless it's to put myself in front of some air conditioning or a fan)
It's so hot in the city today that I can't think about anything other than ice cubes, ice cream... and the sea. I wouldn't mind being here right now, feeling the hot sun on my shoulders but knowing I was just minutes from jumping into the sea!
