    Surprising how beautiful a daily scene can be. Can I now request a picture of the Pantheon, or don\'t you take requests?

The story behind "Ice cream shop in Rome, Italy"

All roads lead to Rome, a fact which was useful when entering the city, but also evidently true when we tried to leave it on our bicycles a few days later, which was quite impossible :-)
It is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen, filled to the max with age old streets and buildings, breathing culture from its pores. It should be mandatory for all US high school students to spend at least a few days in Europe to see what makes Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, London and many other smaller places so much different than the same line-up of McDonald’s, Pizza-Huts and shiny office buildings at home. Here the cities have hearts.

That said, one of the other great attractions of Rome and Italy in general was its ice cream, many flavours of handmade ice took at least half of our daily traveling budget. Not shipped in from huge factories, but made in the back of the shop. This little street contained a few shops as it was along the tourist way to the Pantheon, just around the corner. The shop was decorated with small Italian flags, each commemorating a recent victory in the soccer world championship…
