Rome at Night

A copy of this wonderful article from the New York Times found its way into my local paper on Saturday. The author, Ian Fisher, does a great job of capturing the feel of Rome's magical golden glow. I enjoyed the printed article so much that I looked it up on the NY Times website to see if there were any extras. I found this slideshow, and this interactive walking tour.

My mom, sister and I spent Sunday afternoon reminiscing about our March 2006 visit to Rome. We hope to return in the not-too-distant future and stroll these golden streets once again. Of course, we may not be so lucky as to have them all to ourselves the next time!

I'm so glad you posted this. I think the guy with the accordian sang outside of my apartment window a couple of nights last summer in Trastevere.

The walking tour is so cool! I gotta get to bed but plan to listen to them all tomorrow.

I do hope you and your sister and mom will be able to return to Rome soon. How lucky to find an empty street at night.

Oh I caught my breath at that photograph!
I wonder if I'll get back to Rome this December... we shall see what we shall see.

Thanks for coming in to look at my new book set up. :) Two pictures to go, and I can call that one finished, I am already working on the third. :)

The first was called Marcelle's Memories and is to be mailed up to mom at the end of this week, the current one is called Digital Magic... and the new one is titled Wistful Thinking as I'll start with mom's poem of that name and a picture I made to go with it.
