I am, thanks to some of you readers, now ensconced in my apartment in Rome. I met friends tonight for supper.
Some of you said that you live vicariously through travel entries, so I will obliged as time permits.
The trip across the pond was uneventful and the trip into the City was equally smooth. After taking possession of the flat, I picked up some groceries and ran errands, and then met a friend for lunch.
Back to the flat and a nap.
Carbonara at a well-known place in the Borgo Pio along with the usual insider Vatican baseball box scores for the past few days.
Mixed greens salad to follow. Honestly, I should have just had the salad, but today is my Name Day, which is a bigger deal here than in the USA.
A stroll across St. Peter’s Square on the way home.
I have seen (both of) these things more times than I can count but they are always welcome, like old friends. It is nice to be here and not to have the urgent desire to go “see things”. I can just be.
