Observing Rome – Street Scenes & Recollections

Been here a few days and have a cognitive map of this small area, hard to get lost. It’s very nice here, scenic. They’ve maintained old things. I’ve seen only one glass and steel high-rise, and not that high, less than ten floors. Wonderful old buildings with windows that open on tree lined streets, sidewalk cafes everywhere. Insanely decorated churches, statues . . . This is not the most expensive city. Doesn’t rank in the top ten, but I suspect it’s an expensive place to live.

It’s nice to simply walk around, explore the streets.

So many things.

There are fantastic churches almost every other block. No tourist mobs, maybe one or two people, no admission and mind numbingly ornate.

This one is worth a click to enlarge – I promise.
