Day 25: Adventures
This morning began with coffee and a croissant at the coffee bar down the road, this time accompanied by Diane's friend Mary and her husband, David. After breakfast, we went on a photo journey. We didn't get far, however, due to the heat. We did go to a hotel around the corner. Behind the reception of this little hotel, is a glass door, which leads to roman caves. When they redid the hotel, they decided to do a little digging, and found caves filled with large artifacts, which they left there. It was surreal and beautiful.
We left the hotel, walked to the market to buy some ingredients for lunch, and headed back to the apartment. Once there, we made a wonderful salad and pasta with vegetables. After lunch, we sat around and talked for a long time.
When Mary left, I gave Diane a massage. Afterwards, we went on a little photo adventure; the setting sun cast beautiful light on Rome. We shot the ruins, the streets, and the fountains. We had dinner at an amazing pizzeria. After dinner, I spent some time in the apartment, talking to people and getting some things in order. I then headed out to do some night photography. Jazz in my ears, I walked through the streets of Rome watching and taking photos. It was lonely, exciting, and beautiful.
