I finally got a vacation and went to Rome and Ischia, which is an island off Naples. I love Rome. I first went when I was in Ethiopia and returned to the States via Rome. I was struck by the layers of generations exposed in such an unpretentious way, mixed with a modern urban environment.
Here are some shots…
A beautiful Indian woman with her daughter relaxing near the Colosseum. She looked so incredible, like a painting.
Getting wild at the fountain.
Jeff outside the Colosseum. We had just landed and were all jet lagged but headed out any way. It’s the best way to start since you always feel groggy and dreamlike.
This guy dressed up in a toga and went to the Trevi Fountain. The cops had fit and went to arrest him. I thought it was a great idea and wish I had done it too.
A fort that protects the Vatican.
Inside the Vatican. I used a segway to ride around. I felt like a giant nerd but loved it.
