back from rome

Rome is like a really amazing theme park. Everywhere I looked, there was something to see, experience, and remember. I shot over 20 GB of photos!!!

There is nothing new in Rome, there's old, and then there's ancient, and the two mingle perfectly, and one can't help but marvel at the amazing artistry and craftsmanship of everything. It's perfection, built one statue, mosaic, column, arch, dome, fountain, cobblestone at a time. There's no way it could ever be possible to deliberately create something so breathtaking.

In most places, this would be a special, stand-out building, but in Rome, everything looks like this! That "Via Paolina" plaque is the standard street sign in both Rome and Siena. It took awhile for me to catch on to these facts and to stop taking photos of pretty much every building and sign I passed.

I have close to 2,000 images to go through and I'm excited, but quite overwhelmed by it. So I've decided to show you Rome and Siena one sight or theme at a time. This will help me cull through my photos in an organized way, and to give you the best tour and commentary. I'll of course show you all of the major sights, but I'd also like to show you things like Vespas, bicycles, windows, terraces, arches, doors, streets, and cafes. Yes, I am going to be quite busy, but you've got to see this! Of course, if you've already been to Italy, you know what I'm talking about :)

Maybe I'm more of an Italy girl than a France girl afterall...
