AWESOME ROME!

by Louisa Klein

And I’m baaaack! Guys, Rome was amazing! Just be careful and take a smartphone with you since there’s no Starbucks and you’ll find very little wirereless around. I got cut off for 2 weeks, managind to check emails and ost a few potos from a nearby bar but I really have a lot of catching up to do with emails and other cyber stuff. On the other hand, without the internet I managed to to a ton of work! 🙂 This writing retreat really was useful! Let me share with you SOME of the photos I took of the places I’ve been, can’t share them all or this blog would be only about Rome! So, let’s start!
Here’s the Saint Peter’s (designed by the great Michelangelo) columnade in the very early morning; in the background, you can see the already crazy queue to enter.

After Saint Peter, I was off the city centre, meandering through  Rome’s historical roads and alleys.

Until I reached Navona Square, one of the most beautiful places in the world. Here’s a pic of one of the two fountains: the Fountain of Neptune.
