abc wednesday - R is for "Roman rooftops"

Here's a little tip: If you're in Rome,
go up to the rooftop bar of the Hotel
Raphael. You'll pay a premium for
your drink, but you'll also get some
lovely pre-dinner snacks on the casa
(just don't let the overly aggressive
Roman pigeons get them) and a view
that can't be beat—and it's great in
every direction.

  1. Rome, and your beloved Paris, age so well. How is the U.S. likely to age? Like this but more vandalized.

  2. Nice Rs! I don't know Rome, but you're making me want to go there....

  3. Pointy-topped Doo-dads!!!

    Thanks for the tip, Alexa ~ sounds like a lovely way to while away a few hours.

  4. oooh...I wish I were there this very minute!

  5. I'm with Lily! Wish I were there right this moment, too! Beautiful shot! I do love Italy!



  6. If we get to Italy as planned next year, I'll make a point of it!

  7. TG -- I guess the U.S. is already aging like that, or at least NYC is—that's a great shot of 5 Pointz, in Queens.
    Lily -- I know you do! I wish we were ALL there right now.

  8. Alexa, I agree, “5 Pointz” is a great shot. It’s from your “THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 2009” posting. Great shots are taken by great photographers, no?

  9. Rome is high on my list of place I REALLY WANT TO GO.

  10. TG -- oh, yeah. Well, so much for MY memory.
