A Beautiful Day

Yesterday Rome was covered in sun. It was about time, the last weeks it has rained more in Rome than it rains in Belgium I think. And it did start to get me. Having no job is harder than I thought.
I quit a job I was good at to find myself now with lots of free time and no pride. Cleaning and washing doesn't really make me feel like I actually contribute to anything at all. As I'm struggling to find my way, the rain didn't make things easier.
So to cheer me up the Italian took me to the center yesterday to have one of the best gelato I have ever had at Giolitti. We took a walk to Piazza di Spagna, the place where almost 10 years ago I met the Italian for the first time. He was having an icecream.

The year we arrived in rome it rained all the time too- It takes a bit of getting used to. But I'm glad you had a wander to Giolitti and the Spanish steps. It sounds lovely.

Joanne - It was the best!

Red - It does take a bit of getting used to. I just thought -being Belgian- it wouldn't affect me as much. Oh well, the weather will only get better from now on...
