Looking old?

28 Sep

Maylo and I seem to be looking a bit old today. Two people commented on Maylo clearly not being a young dog anymore and someone about 50 just gave up her seat on the tram for me. Nice and a bit discouraging at the same time.

ecb in Rome

24 Sep

If you are ever in Rome near the Termini train station and need a bite to eat, you could do worse than Cucina da Luciano on the corner of Via Giovanni Amendola and Via Danieli Manin. All the signs are in Italian (Orari Mar – Dom) but the staff speak English. The pasta is al dente and the drinkable house wine costs EUR 2 for a quarter of a liter. A nice experience on a Saturday, when some Italians also seemed to be enjoying a leisurely lunch.

Changeable weather today

These two photos were taken from the same spot on the canal — the dark clouds were upriver and the blue sky was down. Maylo and I did get quite wet as we were walking upriver. It’s a good thing that we are not, as one says in German, made of sugar!
