Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: (Not Jeff) Bridges

Not done with Roma yet, as if it was possible to be done with Roma. Today one bridge for Cee, leading to the island with a special function.

When I announced to my family that I was going to Roma on my first visit, there could have been a vast misunderstanding if left at that. In Slovenian language, a woman “goes to Roma” when she is pregnant. I wonder if this is internationally used, but I think not.

I also wonder if the origin of this expression is connected to the most beautiful and beautifully located maternity hospital far and wide: on the island in the middle of the Tiber. My amore was born here, as well as countless other Romans. And the Pons Cestius bridge can take you there, if it’s urgent.

As for me… I prefer to stay on this bank, with brand new books. Other people’s, until I start popping out my own.  (Pop on any photo and see it grow.)
