Day Five

Day five today, and I feel as though I have been here for a month already. I am trying to make friends with the lady who works at the sandwich shop I go to every day for lunch. I used what little Italian I do know to learn her name, and tell her I will return tomorrow for lunch, she appreciated the attempt and gave me a smile when I said "Ciao, bella...a domani.". The reason I like this place, they are cheap, fast and delicious. I usually get the caprese panini, I've never had caprese in a sandwich before, it is VERY good. We are taking our ciesta right now at the apartment, naps and shots of cold limoncello. We visited the Pantheon, another huge basilica, and also went to the Crypta Balbi today. This evening we are going to visit Montemartini and then are having a party in the evening to celebrate the end of our first week here. 


We have a photography guru with us named Mel, he is helping us learn and assigning us missions, one of which includes working in black and white, very useful with some of these old pieces of art.....

I love the black and white photos, and you're right, it does seem to work well with these subjects.

Every where we've gone so far, I find myself bragging to friends and strangers alike... I know Joe - he's the guy over in Rome right now who is going to make the world shine with new light and have new colors... right before your eyes... just you wait.

Black and white truly provides us a different way of looking at things. I love it.
