I want to be back in Rome… living in the center… in the center of Rome… taking public transportation… and at the same time wondering when the next transportation strike will take place… and how will I get back from work… walking pass history, buildings, statues, obelisks, ruins… Colosseo … dealing with nonsense traffic… figuring out bureaucracy… remembering to buy stamps and envelops at the Tabaccheria and not the Post Office… always discovering a new part of Rome, no matter how long you have lived here… walking down Trastevere… Tiber in the summer… Campo de Fiori senza fiori but full of drunk students that always leave you with a good story to tell… Vatican City… Trevi fountain at 3am when no one is around… gelato… Piazza del Popolo on New Years Eve… Notte Bianca when it still happened… flooding of the Tiber… 150 years of united Italy celebration in the center of Rome… finding places that make amazing amatriciana… suppli… pizza margarita… walking for miles… bancarelle… watching soccer games in any bar or at the stadium… watching Italians “following” the line or as I’d like to call it… let’s see who get’s there faster… ZTL zones… Gianicolo hill… nights and days spend exploring Rome with friends… There is nothing like Rome… even when it’s not your home…
