I was riding the metro mid-morning and suddenly tuned into the fact that there was some really soothing accordian music playing in the background. They don't play music on the metro. I began looking for the source and found this gentleman about 2 cars down sweetly playing. I walked over, shared my "just because" gift with him, and asked to take his picture. He smiled and said sure. I wish I had checked the photo before leaving and took a better one, but I was at my stop and had to dash.
I know it's been a while since I've posted here. My return to the states and back to my everyday responsibilities has kept me from writing. Alas, though money is practically
nonexistent, I cannot stay away and will be returning to Rome in 3 weeks for a short, 10 day visit. She calls to me in the night and will not allow me to rest peacefully until I commiy to popping in on her once again.
Because my favorite apartment in Trastevere ( www.alportoncino.it ) isn't available, I've rented a place nearer Borghese park. http://www.vrbo.com/385745 It seems nice, but,
as always, we'll see when I get there.
My computer crashed last weekend, so I'm not sure I'll be taking one with me. If not, I'll take lots of pictures and catch you up when I get home.
Came across this in my meanderings. If the bent, flat tire didn't guarantee its safety, the chain will do the trick.
And then.... The next day I saw another one! Chained up for safety. Because you never know who might want this fine mode of transportation.
