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.

Monday Mellow Yellows

Very yellow and very, well not exactly
mellow . . . but definitely delicious.
Or so I assume, if limoncino is anything
like limoncello.

Shadow Shot Sunday

You might not pay that much attention
to the shadows in this room
at the Vatican—it's one of the Raphael
rooms, where he painted 
his "School of Athens."

the Weekend in Black and White

Sometimes the door to the courtyard is
open, and you get a glimpse
of life in the heart of Rome.  I could
live here—just saying.
