A terrace in Rome

The hotel room my daughter and I stayed
in last month in Rome came with
a lovely surprise—a pretty terrace with
green plants and stucco walls and
blue-shuttered doors.

inSPIREd Sunday

I think that a lot of the people who
visit the Pantheon in Rome
don't realize that it's also a church.

Many of them are mainly there
to look up and see
(which is incredible, I admit).

The Weekend in Black and White

Today La Serenissima is 1, 596 years old.
Buon Compleanno, Venezia!

Weekend Reflections

A store in the Campo dei Fiori,
in Rome, where my daughter Katie
bought lots of yummy dried
sausage to bring home.  I managed
to resist, but it was not easy.

Thursday Challenge—"old"

Here's something that's pretty ancient.
Construction was begun under
the emperor Vespasian in AD 72 and
completed eight years later
(under Titus).  So, 1,937 years old.  
I'd have to say it qualifies.

ABC Wednesday—K is for "kitchen"

Or at least for anything you could ever possibly
need for yours.  This is one small cubby
at the Paris emporium E. Dehillerin, where cooks
from near and far come to stock
up on the essentials.

This is a variety of blood orange that's
native to Italy—and they were
for sale at the market in the Campo dei Fiori,
where I also took yesterday's photo.
My daughter and I were there at 8 a.m.—and even
knowing that we had to fit whatever
purchased in our already full bags and leave for the
 by noon, we still bought too much stuff.
Just too hard to resist.
