Roman HolidayGranada, Spring 2010
While my other Rome post documented more the historical side of Rome, this post is dedicated to the people and the fun we had just roaming the city. Two of my close friends are studying in Rome with IES, and we were able to spend time with them and see the Rome that they know. We wandered through parks, spent time on Tiber Island, explored the Jewish ghetto, and ate ridiculous amounts of gelato. Molly and I couldn’t quite explain what we had expected Rome to be. We couldn’t quite find the words, or maybe even the thoughts, to say what we thought it was going to be like. We both agreed it was different than we imagined, but no matter what our previous judgments were, we left in love with Rome.
