Even though Fonzie was left in good care, we spent a particularly happy day in Rome with three new friends, with both East and West Coast represented. Just as I was complaining about lack of human company.
But first, as usually on the weekend, a recap of the past week on my blog. There were:
- Two Roald Dahl quotations and a visit to San Bruzio monastery ruins with the right people (and animal);
- several windows and other holes from “Slovenian Tuscany”;
- a visit to the Rotonda above the Abbey of San Galgano where cats watch over the sword that has been left in stone;
- on my grandma’s birthday there were doors in Talamone cemetery in all senses of the word because it was Thursday;
- and on the weekly photo subject of “Friends” you could see my spirit animals and learn to stay away from false friends.
I don’t suppose many of you know that the real name of our Bestia is Fonzie, yes, after Arthur Fonzarelli from “Happy Days”.
Yesterday, while he was resting and apparently crying for us in the most beautiful Roman garden, we had a grand time, hopping around Rome’s less known neighbourhoods, basilicas and restaurants with a jolly American trio who thus commenced their tour of Italy. I told them – after yesterday all days will lack in comparison.
Let’s see what all you can see if a natural born Romano is showing your around. Individual destinations will get their own posts in the future (except the post office with no stamps – stamp it!). Click on the first photo and follow along.
