Last Tuesday, Hetty and I hopped on an Alitalia Airbus and flew to the Eternal City. We managed to arrive at our hotel and, as promised, it was right around the corner from Anita's pool, otherwise known as the Trevi Fountain. I don't know how many pictures I took there, Lightroom says over a hundred, but I may have missed tagging a few.
We spent almost five days wandering around the city, happily clicking away. We saw the regular sites, such as the Forum and the Vatican, but also dipped into a bit of more...off the beaten track Rome as we wandered around small vicoli
in places like Trastavere.
Rome is truly a great city, with so many things to see... The wonderful weather we had, made us stick to mostly outdoor sites and more wandering and people watching, so I guess we'll have to come back to visit more of the museums. And come back we will, if only because we chucked a penny in the fountain.
Anyroad, we flew back home yesterday afternoon. After counting my pictures this morning, I found out I've took more than 1,500 shots (and that's excluding the ones I already deleted while I was there). I started tagging them in Lightroom and deleting a few more shots. Slowly wandering from shot to shot, figuring out which to keep, which to edit, which to possibly upload here...
Presumably, I'll end up with three Picasa albums: one with sights, one with people and one with things.
Oh well, you'll see...
